Thumbs down Gitmo Five: Worst Of Worst? - More White-Wing Fairy Tales

Quote:

"And as for these five men, when I was chief prosecutor, we had screened all of the detainees and we had focused on about 75 that had the potential to be charged with a crime. When I saw the names the other day, I wasnít familiar with any of these names. So we had more than 12 years if we could have proven that they had done something wrong that we could prosecute them for Iím confident we would have done it, and we didnít."

"My role as chief prosecutor was to review the information we had on the detainees to determine which ones we could potentially bring war crimes charges against," said Davis.

"When I saw the names of the five individuals, when they were reported last weekend, my first reaction was who are they," he said. "I never saw the names before, which means there was not enough information to even make it on our list of potential prosecution."

. Operation Cyclone

Operation Cyclone was the code name for the United States Central Intelligence Agency program to arm and finance the Afghan mujahideen prior to and during the Soviet war in Afghanistan, 1979 to 1989. The program leaned heavily towards supporting militant Islamic groups that were favored by neighboring Pakistan, rather than other, less ideological Afghan resistance groups that had also been fighting the Marxist-oriented Democratic Republic of Afghanistan regime since before the Soviet intervention. Operation Cyclone was one of the longest and most expensive covert CIA operations ever undertaken;[1] funding began with $20–$30 million per year in 1980 and rose to $630 million per year in 1987.[2] Funding continued after 1989 as the Mujahideen battled the forces of Mohammad Najibullah's PDPA during the Civil war in Afghanistan (1989–1992).[3]

You are citing Newsmax now? Dems are desperate on this issue. Diane Feinstein ripped Obama on Face the Nation this morning. The old guy cited as a prosecutor retired 7 years ago, no wonder the names didn't sound familiar. Obama suspended the tribunals in 2009 on his second day on the job. Think that may have had something to do with no trial for these guys? From Newsmax:

U.S. Southern Command, Marine Gen. John F. Kelly, men held here are "some of the most despicable and dangerous men on the planet," as he put it in an impassioned speech Saturday night praising the troops who guard prisoners during a ball held at the base to mark the founding of the U.S. Army in June 1775.

The general declined in an interview with The Associated Press to discuss the exchange for Bergdahl. He did say the five Taliban were influential at Guantanamo. They were held in the communal unit known as Camp 6, where detainees can while away their time with up to 18 hours of recreation per day, including more than 100 satellite TV channels and other privileges as long as they follow the rules.

"These guys were leaders but they were smart leaders," Kelly said.

It is hilarious watching them flip flop and cum all over each other as they circle the wagons using sources they would never accept from anyone else.

I love it.
