In the eyes of conservatives, Joe Biden has just done the unthinkable.
The cell doors for three Guantanamo prisoners are being opened to set them free.
Among the three men is an alleged 9/11 conspirator.
Set Them Free
When Barack Obama was in office, Guantanamo was an eyelash away from being emptied and closed.
Trump slammed the brakes on that right out of the gate.
Joe Biden is now picking up where Obama left off.
Just over 100 days into his administration, Joe Biden is setting Saifullah Paracha, 73, and Abdul Rabbani, 54, both of Pakistan, and Uthman Abdul al-Rahim Uthman, 40, of Yemen free.
The most notable name on that list is Paracha, who is alleged to have ties to Al Qaeda.
Paracha has been imprisoned for almost two decades, but now he is being sent back to Pakistan.
Shelby Sullivan-Bennis, his attorney, stated, “The Pakistanis want him back, and our understanding is that there are no impediments to his return.”
Contrary to the narrative being pitched by Sullivan-Bennis, the review board stated that he is “not a continuing threat.”
At the time of his arrest, Paracha lived and owned property in New York as well as being a very wealthy businessperson.
Authorities detained him for being an alleged “facilitator” for Al Qaeda.
Amnesty International is now putting additional pressure on Joe Biden to clear and close the facility.
In part, the group stated, “This is an outrageous and shameful violation of human rights.
“President Biden cannot have true credibility advocating for other countries to respect human rights if he does not prioritize closing Guantánamo.”
It would not be shocking at all to finish what Barack Obama started in completely closing down the facility and releasing all prisoners to other nations or relocating them to prisons within our interior.
That has always been the biggest fear on the right, with many believing these individuals will radicalize prisoners and create homegrown terrorists.
When Trump was in office, that was a key factor in keeping this facility open and these specific prisoners away from other inmates.
