U.S. frees 9 Guantanamo prisoners, sends them to Saudi Arabia

camp delta

All of the men whose release was announced Saturday are Yemeni but could not be sent back to their homeland because U.S. officials fear that the instability there would enable them to resume the militant activities that landed them at Guantanamo in the first place. They are expected to take part in a Saudi rehabilitation program for an undisclosed length of time.

    So they send them where it all began.

    …”a Saudi rehabilitation program for an undisclosed length of time” as in a fast track wahabbi iman program where upon ‘certification’ they will be sent to German mosques paid for by Saudi. Great.

    The saudi program is a social club for jihadis. it has king sized beds and visits from wives etc

  • I’m sure this will all work out well.

    It’s time to make Mecca into glass.

    In the mean time, some Blondie:

      I hope I live to see the day.

      • I think “Heart of Glass” should be the anthem for that day (which may come sooner than one thinks).

          I need to get to work on the alternate lyrics to that Blonde song.

          What rhymes with “self-illuminated glass floored parking lot”?

          Sung to the tune of “BIG Yellow Taxi”

          • Minicapt

            “Bernie Sanders is a slack-assed sot”?


          • How about: “The Saudis had a kingdom; it was nuked and now it’s gone!

            Those infidels put in a glass parking lot!”

            We need Randy Newman for this.

    • We should just tell them that the next time something bad happens here in the west the travel advisory for your next pilgrimage to Mecca will be “Don’t forget to bring a geiger-counter and a very long repelling rope, Yer gonna need it!”

      • How about: “Anyone not wearing a 2 million sunblock is going to have a bad day!”

    Are they Shiite or Sunni? If Shiite, not too good for them.

  • It is so ridiculously perverse — so long as the Sauds sorta kinda maybe look like Westerners with rehab centres, the terrorists will be all fixed. I think criminal rehab even in the West has less than a 5% success rate.

    And the only thing the Sauds will teach them is that instead of chopping off people’s heads and mutilating them helter-skelter like the “rogue” Jihadis in ISIS do, they should only mutilate and behead people for their religious peccadilloes under a bigger “official” Sharia bureaucracy like that of the Sauds.

    Not surprising that the saudis are so concerned about the release of the rest of the 9/11 inquiry is it.
