Two More Gitmo Detainees Return To Militancy

Hillary Clinton can count support for closing the Guantanamo Bay facility as another mark against her foreign policy record. As the U.S. worries about ISIS and the threat of terror writ large, Clinton has nonetheless advocated for closing the facility and setting its dangerous inmates loose on the world.

Underscoring the threat of Clinton’s feckless policies, Reuters reported yesterday that two more Guantanamo Bay detainees released by the Obama administration have returned to militancy. According to the report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, including these two, a total of nine detainees have returned to the fight since 2009, the beginning of Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.

Considering the administration has admitted that previously released detainees have killed American citizens, Clinton should have to answer for her support for closing the facility despite the danger it poses to America and its allies.
