New Report: Only 28 Percent of Guantanamo Bay Detainees Return to Terrorist Ways!

Good news from Guantanamo Bay!  Well, sort of.  The rate at which detainees return to terrorism (a.k.a., “reengage”) after being released “back into the wild” has not increased, according to the latest report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.  Instead, the rate has remained at 28 percent — the same as it was the last time I reported it.  In other words, only 174 of 603 detainees who’ve been released from the U.S. Navy’s detention facility in Cuba have returned to their wicked ways!!!

And there is more bad news:  One-hundred and three are not in custody, probably on their way to Syria to engage in some U.S. taxpayer-supported regime change.

TheClapperMemoFrontCoverLR 6-5-13In my recently-released book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, I share details contained in letters and other documents I obtained during the past four years from individuals who served as high-ranking interrogation officials at GITMO.  Most importantly, I share how they describe the damage done to national security by a Pentagon decision to strip GITMO interrogators of their most-effective tool for learning about detainees’ past exploits and future plans.  And, of course, Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. plays a key role in this story one retired Navy SEAL called “an unconscionable cover-up.”

To learn more, order a copy of THE CLAPPER MEMO, a book which has received a number of high-profile endorsements since its release in May. The book is available in paperback and ebook versions.
