Before Obama leaves office he’s determined to fulfill at least one campaign promise — unfortunately it’s the one that involves increasing the number of free-range terrorists:

Five men who were held for a dozen years at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have been sent to the Central Asian nation of Kazakhstan for resettlement, the U.S. government announced Tuesday.

The two men from Tunisia and three from Yemen had been cleared for release from the prison by a government task force but could not be sent to their homelands. The U.S. has sent hundreds of prisoners from Guantanamo to third countries but this is the first time Kazakhstan has accepted any for resettlement.

Their release brings the prison population at Guantanamo to 127, according to a Pentagon statement.
[...]
Nearly 30 prisoners have been resettled in third countries this year as part of President Barack Obama’s renewed push to close the detention center over opposition from Congress.

The excuse they couldn’t be sent to their “homelands” is hilarious: Because of “unrest and militant activity.” In other words the Obama administration is saying it would be be like releasing somebody from the Betty Ford Clinic and sending them to live on Fremont Street in Vegas. Usually the truth is that their home countries don’t want them back.

    Geography is irrelevant. Today's terrorist networks have become allowed to be so sophisticated, ISIS will be providing a salary, cell phone and promotion within days if not HOURS of their release.

    But the administration has a point? With all the home grown terrorists they're nurturing, inciting and enabling HERE; ( what's a few detainees from "Gitmo" gonna' 'matter'? )

    And… because everyone [ it would appear ] is either a) too hungover from last night ( I'm taking baby steps ) OR… b) picking up where they left OFF;

    Let's make 2015 an absolutely MISERABLE year for all the Progressives in our lives! I mean, truly, FREAKING miserable! They're doing an awesome job ( all on their OWN natch ) but it's important ( as "concerned 'friends' " ) to loan them that rope, rifle or Draino (TM) they've been wanting to borrow?

    Suck POND scum you dirtbags! May you look back on this Administration's 2014 as; "the good old days".

    Further ( and my homemade Limoncello was an absolute HIT btw ) as MSNBC circles the DRAIN:

    "Griffin, in a memo sent Monday, also promised “to get on the road — and outside of Washington” to broaden the network’s coverage."

    Well, whatever you DO Mr. Griffin; Do NOT consider telling…, The TRUTH!?!? Just keep being the WH's personal ( 24/7/365 ) broadcasting arm until it has fewer viewers than, 'Current' TV/Air America and you just may wind up w/ a government pension?

    In other news, Oregon released Florida State from any illusions they may have had about them winning the championship this year.

    There are 3 teams I root for in college football: Clemson, whoever is playing the Gamecocks, and whoever is playing Florida State.
