So, sending 5 terrorists from Gitmo to Oman, which borders Yemen to which they can easily return is a good idea?
Last September Obama cited Yemen as a success story in combating terrorism and a model for his strategy to defeat ISIS. That's worked well hasn't it? Yemen is the source of the terror cells that struck in Paris and ISIS is bigger than ever.
So, naturally Obama wants to reward Yemeni terrorists by sending back five of the worst from Gitmo. That follows on from earlier terrorist releases, his refusal to attend the March in Paris and continued refusal to link Islam with terrorism. Obviously even Obama can't be this stupid so something else must be going on.
Roger Simon wonders whose side Obama is on:
I started this post thinking it was kind of funny. I liked the hed — “Is the White House a ‘Sleeper Cell’?” It reminded me of, um… Charlie Hebdo. But actually it’s not so funny. And it’s not impossible. We know something close already happened during the communist era (Alger Hiss), and the Israelis famously planted an agent, Eli Cohen, at the highest echelons of the Syrian government until he was caught via the KGB and hanged in the central square of Damascus. They say it was Cohen’s reports that were responsible for the rapid Israeli success against the Syrians in the Six-Day War.You are free to draw your own conclusions but actions speak louder than words and thus far Obama's actions don't seem to be doing much to dent the expansion of terrorism. Quite the opposite!
But a “sleeper cell” in the White House? It would certainly explain Obama’s not going to France, which was a decision that hurt the USA, hurt the effort against Islamic terror and hurt the president’s already tarnished reputation into the bargain. There are so many other things that the existence of a White House “sleeper cell” would explain that I couldn’t even begin to count them. And as you know, a cell doesn’t have to be violent to be active. There are many ways to do damage.
But who would be a member of this cell? Is it one or all of them? Well that, I am sorry to say, I cannot tell you. I do not have the proper clearance. You are, however, free to guess. Who would stop you?
