AT LEAST 30 former Guantanamo Bay detainees have been killed or recaptured after taking up arms against allied forces following their release.
They have been discovered mostly in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but not in Iraq, a US Defence Department spokesman told The Age yesterday.
Commander Jeffrey Gordon said the detainees had, while in custody, falsely claimed to be farmers, truck drivers, cooks, small-arms merchants, low-level combatants or had offered other false explanations for being in Afghanistan.
“We are aware of dozens of cases where they have returned to militant activities, participated in anti-US propaganda or engaged in other activities,” said Commander Gordon.
His comments follow the death this week of Taliban commander and former detainee Abdullah Mehsud, who reportedly blew himself up rather than surrender to Pakistani forces. In December 2001, Mehsud was captured in Afghanistan and held at Guantanamo Bay until his release in March 2004. He later became the Taliban chief for South Waziristan.

Hat Tip: Jihad Watch
And these are the types of people the Left, and their clueless allies, would have us put in U.S. prisons to spread their poison, not to mention their skills, to inmates who have converted to Islam while in prison.
What is to stop these radicalized American Muslims from engaging in their own jihad once they are freed from prison? This is a poisonous virus that must be watched very closely, lest we find ourselves in a similar situation as experienced in France, and other parts of Europe who are enduring ‘rampaging youth’ who love to burn cars, riot, and other such nonsense.
We have had numerous terrorist attacks on American soil before and after 9/11. For political reasons, both the Bush-43 Administration and the Democrats refuse to acknowledge them for what they are, jihadis committing acts of terror.
