Top Obama Official: Some Gitmo Terrorists Will Be Returned to Yemen …Update: Wants to Give Undie Bomber Deal for Talking
At least they don’t have to worry about their welcome home party…
Al Qaeda members and supporters in Yemen held a massive rally just days before the attempted plane bombing on a Delta flight from The Netherlands to Detroit.
Barack Obama’s Terrorism czar John Brennan announced today that some Gitmo detainees will be sent back to Yemen.
The United States still intends to send some Yemeni detainees at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, facility back to Yemen despite a terrorist threat there, President Barack Obama’s terrorism czar said Sunday.
John Brennan, the assistant to the president for homeland security and counter-terrorism, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the failed Christmas Day terror attack on a U.S. airliner doesn’t change the plan to close the Guantanamo facility.
On Saturday, Obama linked the airline bombing suspect to an al Qaeda affiliate based in Yemen.
Brennan called the failed attack on a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Detroit, Michigan a “unique incident” that won’t affect the process of closing the Guantanamo facility.
