CONFIRMED: 117 Gitmo Detainees Returned to Terrorism So Far or 18% of Released Detainees

Barack Obama announced Tuesday his plan to close Guantanamo Bay prison.

Obama told Yahoo in December that “only a handful” of Gitmo detainees has returned to a life of terrorism.

The actual number is closer to 196… So he was only off by 191.

Former Guantanamo detainee, Ibrahim Qosi, who is also known as Sheikh Khubayb al Sudani, is now an al-Qaeda leader in Yemen.

In December Stephen Hayes at The Weekly Standard dissected Obama’s latest shocking lie.

It doesn’t match up at all. I think what we saw from the president there was sort of aggressive, breath-taking dishonesty. The president may not know how many Guantanamo detainees have been released but we do. 653. Of which, 196 are either confirmed or suspected recidivists. That is not a handful. That is about 40 handfuls. That’s far more than the president is suggesting. Beyond that the president said the United States has released only low-level individuals. Again, unequivocally false.

Via Special Report:

According to Obama’s own Director of National Intelligence, 117 former detainees are confirmed of returning to terror. 79 more detainees are suspected of returning to the fight.

That’s a confirmed recidivism rate of 18% and a confirmed-suspected recidivism rate of 30%.
