Just in time for his “investigation” into successful CIA interrogations.
The Obama administration reportedly has released a prisoner from the Guantanamo Bay detention camp accused of attacking U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
According to Reuters, the administration released Mohammed Jawad to his home in Afghanistan.
Jawad had been accused of throwing a grenade in 2002 that injured two U.S. soldiers and their interpreter in Kabul. He has returned to his family, according to his lawyer.
Kirk Lippold, former USS Cole commander and fellow at Military Families United, criticized the decision in a statement Monday, calling it part of a “sadly familiar pattern.”
“No coherent policy in the war on terror. No comprehensive plan in place to deal with the future of Guantanamo Bay detainees. No accountability for terrorists who harm our brave fighting forces,” he said.
Last I checked, if you heave a grenade at U.S. troops on the battlefield, that makes you an enemy combatant, and you can be held until the formal end of hostilities. I’m willing to bet little Jawad probably planted a few IEDs and participated in other attacks with his jihad pals, as well.
Every choice Obama makes in this war diminishes the security of the United States and the efforts of the military.
Bin Laden must be laughing his ass off.
