And why not? The Pentagon dares not do anything to challenge the ideology of the prisoners there “” signing a statement is nothing, especially to men whose religion sanctions religious deception (taqiyya, cf. Qur’an 16:106). From AP, with thanks to Joyce:
WASHINGTON (AP) — At least seven former prisoners of the United States at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have been involved in terrorist acts, despite gaining their freedom by signing pledges to renounce violence, according to the Pentagon.
At least two are believed to have died in fighting in Afghanistan, and a third was recaptured during a raid of a suspected training camp in Afghanistan, Lt. Cmdr. Flex Plexico, a Pentagon spokesman, said last week. Others are at large.
The seven were among 203 detainees released from the prison at the U.S. naval base on Cuba’s southeastern tip since it opened in early 2002.
Of those, 146 were let go only after U.S. officials determined they no longer posed threats and had no remaining intelligence value.
