Mr. Speaker, another GTMO terrorist has been released back into the world by this administration. Abdul Shalabi, a bodyguard for Osama bin Laden, is now a free man thanks to our government.
But this isn't the first time known terrorists have been freed. There is the notorious Taliban Five; and at least one of these terrorist prisoners has allegedly started communicating with his old terrorist buddies in the Middle East. No surprise there; once a terrorist , always a terrorist .
Do we think that after years in prison these terrorists will somehow change their mind and not be a threat to America?
One report even claimed that Shalabi may have been considered one of the 9/11 attackers. Isn't that lovely.
The administration has its priorities backwards. The administration should be working just as hard to free the four Americans trapped in the jaws of terror in Iran as it is freeing known terrorists who will return to their old ways of mischief.
And that is just the way it is.
