A full 30 percent of former Guantanamo Bay detainees went back to terrorism, or are suspected of reengaging, following their transfers to other countries, according to a government report cited in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
Some of the former detainees are no longer engaged in terrorism, because they’re dead or in foreign custody, but the Director of National Intelligence assesses “that some detainees currently at GTMO will seek to reengage in terrorist or insurgent activities after they are transferred.”
The report is required periodically of the DNI by a 2012 federal law.
It explains the forecast is based on “trends identified during the past 15 years.”
The U.S. has been periodically releasing Gitmo residents to their home countries, rather than keeping them indefinitely as prisoners of the war on terror. They are transferred on various conditions, such as not reengaging in terrorism.
