Return to Jihad for Released GITMO Detainees on the Rise [Steve Schippert]
If Earth girls and closing GITMO are easy, so is returning to the jihad for released GITMO detainees. It's on the rise as we look the prospects of GITMO's closure square in the eye.
The Pentagon says the number of Guantanamo Bay detainees who rejoined terrorist missions after being released is on the rise.
Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said Tuesday that 61 detainees are believed as of last month to have returned to the fight against the United States since being released.
That's up from 37 detainees who were either known or suspected of rejoining terror efforts, although Morrell did not immediately know since when.
