Chickens come home to roost…

“150 former Guantanamo detainees are either “confirmed or suspected of reengaging in terrorist or insurgent activities,” according to a new intelligence assessment released by the Director of National Intelligence’s office on Tuesday. In total, 598 detainees have been transferred out of U.S. custody at Guantanamo. 1 out of every 4, or 25 percent, of these former detainees is now considered a confirmed or suspected recidivist by the U.S. government.”

Uh… I believe that many people in the Bush administration warned of this while arguing over Gitmo.

And now, in an interesting twist of policy, Obama wants to actually write a law that legalizes indefinite detention.
