“The assurances that the president has received about the leash that these freed terrorists will be on so that they don’t hold a big danger to our country. Let’s put it this way, there’s more terrorism that is provoked by people being concerned about the imprisonment over a long period of time of these people. It’s a very much bigger picture.”
Even for Pelosi, that was over the top.
For the record… According to a 2010 report, at least 150 former Gitmo detainees have returned to terror after their release.
