Obama Administration Admits Guantanamo Bay "Transfers" (Actually, Amnestied Terrorists) Have Killed Americans

Via Instapundit, no matter how bad you think it is, it's actually worse.

Americans have been killed by prisoners released from the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, a senior Defense Department official told lawmakers Wednesday, triggering sharp criticism from Republicans opposed to shuttering the facility in the wake of deadly attacks by the Islamic State group in Brussels and Paris.

Well, fancy that.

The specific case Obama's minions will cop to involved someone released by George W. Bush (and fancy that, that Obama will only admit to a Bush mistake). But obviously Obama's transfers have returned to terrorism too.

I expect for those cases, the administration will pressure bureaucrats to do what they did in the VA scandal case -- put out a paper stating that no one ever died "of terrorism," because terrorism is not an acknowledged medical cause of death. (They actually did that with the VA wait list scandal -- they said no one died from the wait list, because there's no medical cause of death called "lack of prompt medical attention." Official causes of death are heart failure, diabetic shock, etc.)

Meanwhile, from Hot Air, Michele Malkin has also had it with our culture's response to terrorism -- nothing but empty Sorrow Parades and Empathy Carnivals.

I'm reminded of Braveheart, in the scene where Longshanks is debating which emissary to send to treat with William Wallace. (Forgive that pretentious word choice -- I never had the opportunity to use the "treat with" phrase before, and I couldn't pass up my one chance.)

He considers sending his weak, effeminate son, but dismisses that idea -- "I can't send my son. That'll just encourage Wallace to invade the entire south of the country." Or something like that.

"Tristesse" means "sadness."

What message do these people think they're sending, when their response to mass murder is to draw cartoon tears on children's comic book characters?

By the way, even Tintin, a character drawn for children, understood that some villainy was great enough to compel one to do a little bit more than cry about it.

Why, sometimes he even used "torture" (threats of physical violence) to get what he wanted.

Though maybe he could have used some instruction on proper stance.
