Do not mention Islam!

The administration wants to move 53 Guantanamo detainees to a federal prison in Illinois who are judged too dangerous to free but lacking the evidence against them for a trial, prompting accusations that Mr Obama would merely create a “Guantanamo North”.
A source close to the Obama administration said the Yemenis had agreed in principle to the establishment of a Reintegration and Risk Reduction Initiative, which would be internationally funded and monitored.
Aimed at steering detainees back into society, it would be modeled on previous efforts in Northern Ireland, Saudi Arabia and Jordan.
The project has support from within the US state department and is gaining ground among White House advisers, said the source, because it would help the president dig himself out of a large hole created by his pledge to close the prison while trying to avoid releasing terror suspects back into the militant fold. Having missed his Jan 22 deadline to close the detention centre, as things stand Guantanamo is unlikely to shut this year.
It’s all about digging Obama out of a hole he dug himself into, even when it is contrary to national security. By Obama’s own logic, if Gitmo is a jihadi recruiting tool now, what do you think Gitmo on the Great Satan’s soil will be? Maybe that is what he is counting on?
Meanwhile, Obama is planting the seeds of jihad all across Europe:
US transfers two Guantanamo detainees to Algeria
US Transfers Guantanamo Detainee to Switzerland
US transfers 3 Guantanamo detainees to Slovakia
US transfers Gitmo terror suspects to Italy, France, Hungary, Albania
