Well, we don't have to worry about taking all of these al qaeda bastards that the Messiah seems hell-bent on letting go into our prison system. We'll let the European Union help out, because we all know that those jackasses are the epitome of anti-terrorist toughness.
"European Union leaders said Monday they are willing to take prisoners being released from the U.S. detention camp at Guantanamo Bay — but only after detailed screening to ensure they don't import a terrorist."
Uh, EU guys...your entire continent is one giant terrorist camp. I doubt a few more will make much of a difference. That's kinda like locking the barn door after the horses are out.
"Foreign ministers from the 27-nation bloc discussed the fate of up to 60 Guantanamo inmates who, if freed, cannot be returned to their homelands because they would face abuse, imprisonment or death. The prisoners come from Azerbaijan, Algeria, Afghanistan, Chad, China, Saudi Arabia and Yemen."
Hmmm...there might be a damn good reason why these countries are so interested in prosecuting them. I can identify at least four from that list in which citizens are prominent in al qaeda. But the EU doesn't want any terrorists.
Let me get this straight. The EU is willing to take up to 60 crominals that are seriously wanted in other countries, some of which have considerable representation in al qaeda, but they don't want any terrorists? Am I the only one who thinks this illogical? Have the Europeans truly become this retarded? This is, of course, a rhetorical question.
" Some EU foreign ministers said their own countries — long critical of the Bush administration's operation of Guantanamo — would be accused of hypocrisy if they didn't take at least one ex-prisoner and were seen to be helping Obama with the shutdown."
Ah, now we come to the heart of the matter. Of course, the ministers are right. However, it also seems to me that they painted themselves into a corner with all of the rhetoric they they used throughout the Bush administration. They danced to the Devil's tune, now they must pay the piper.
As much as it would make me happy that the Europeans take some responsibility for their naivity, I fear that releasing these prisoners to them would be akin to simply letting them go. As soon as they are let go, they will melt into the Muslim European framework and will start their wickedness all over again.
