It will be interesting to see if the DOJ can handle this problem. They have completely bungled the interrogation of the Boston Bomber. Let's hope they do a better job on Gitmo, but it doesn't look good.

The same problems exist now as did in 2009 when the President said he would close it down. The President says he doesn't want these guys to die. Their own countries won't take them back. Is he going to put them in his state of Illinois and help the local economy get jobs? Not in my neighborhood is what those people said before. These guys were even making alternative weapons while being under the strict guard of our personnel and cameras. These guys have a different kind of brain than we want in our country and the ability to have someone come into the area and help them escape for the "cause".

Let them get their Darwin Award in Guantanamo. They are doing this because not even their own countries will take them back. These guys have also learned the way our military and their personal attorneys run things with Red Cross review periodically.

I believe there was a movie filmed partially in Wendover, Utah, "CONAIR" that displays what can happen when we move these prisoners to our secure sites. It is not secure in-between, even with security at both ends. Fast and Furious people are in charge.

Like other prisoners recently released, is this because of sequester?
