While Obama golfs in Martha’s Vineyard, yet another decision is made to allow a terrorist to return to his homeland. Way to honor our troops who have lost their lives to these evil men Barry…
President Barack Obama’s multi-agency Periodic Review Board (PRB) has approved an al Qaeda-linked Algerian prisoner for release from the U.S. military detention center in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, conceding that the jihadist “presents some level of threat.”
However, PRB claims that the threat posed by the 43-year-old, Sufiyan Barhoumi, can be “adequately mitigated,” in part due to “his lack of extremist views.”
At one point, the Pentagon deemed the prisoner to be “high risk,” linked to key al Qaeda leadership, and accused him of participating in “hostilities against the US and coalition forces.”
Barhoumi was identified by the Pentagon as an explosive’s expert and Al-Qaeda trainer.
He has been held at Guantánamo since mid June 2002 and on Tuesday became the second detainee to be approved for release by the Gitmo board after presenting a letter of support from a former guard, notes the Miami Herald.
In a statement announcing its latest decision, Obama’s parole board notes:
The Board recommends repatriation to Algeria due to the detainees strong family support and Algeria’s strong record in prior transfers, with security appropriate security assurances as negotiated by the Special Envoys and agreed by relevant USG [US government] departments and agencies.
Algeria has been listed by the U.S. government as a terrorism-linked country.
Barhoumi presented PRB with a detailed plan to open a pizza shop near his mom in the Algerian capital of Algiers, reports the Miami Herald.
