What happens if there is “Not in my backyard syndrome” for Gitmo detainees

A Saudi national released from U.S. detention centre at Guantanomo Bay, Cuba in September 2007 has retruned to previous activities and is believed to be a key leader of Al Qaeda operations in Yemen. What does that say about a foolhardy decision – foolhardy from the point of view that it has been orderd too quickly without thinking about the consequences of the new mealy-mouthed president of the United States?

Mr “smooth” Obama who is so careful about what he says, disguising his real agenda at the same time, has made a decision without thinking through all of the consequences. Surely he could have waited until he had done everything possible to ensure that these detainees, who are not political prisoners, but who have been actively engaged in an act of war, are located to some other secure location.

Ali al-Shiri is a Saudi national, and he was released from Guantanamo for rehabilitation in Saudi Arabia. That did not last long, because he escaped and returned to Yemen where he has continued with his illegal terrorist activity.

One of the major problems that has to be confronted right now is the “not in my backyard syndrome.” From an Australian point of view I agree, we do not want this scum in our country. It is bad enough having David Hicks return to this country, and ditto Mahmoudo Habib. Both are traitors to Australia. They are not heroes. They should not be given a free ride by allowing them access to sue anybody for their detention. Hicks was discovered in Afghanistan, working with the Taliban. Habib was with similar types in Pakistan.

These detainees do not merit special attention since they have murdereous intent against westerners.
