The "Obama to Release Gitmo Prisoners" Story Gets Worse

Not only does the US get to play host to those former detainees, you and I get to pay their living expenses.

President Barack Obama's intelligence chief confirmed Thursday that some Guantanamo inmates may be released on US soil and receive assistance to return to society.

"If we are to release them in the United States, we need some sort of assistance for them to start a new life," said National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair at his first press conference.

"You can't just put them on the street," he added. "All that is work in progress."

Hope. Change. Welfare for suspected terrorists. (H/t: Tammy Bruce)
