It's nice to know…

…that the government's doing something well. It's even better when you know the news is gonna drive Dick Cheney crazy crazier. John Brennan, President Obama's assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, via Jake Tapper...
"Intelligence Community assesses that 20 percent of detainees transferred from Guantanamo are confirmed or suspected of recidivist activity…

...I want to underscore the fact that all of these cases relate to detainees released during the previous administration and under the prior detainee review process. The report indicates no confirmed or suspected recidivists among detainees transferred during this Administration, although we recognize the ongoing risk that detainees could engage in such activity."
Leaves you wondering, of course, what percentage of detainees never had any terrorist history to recede to in the first place.

Anyone who wasn't a terrorist when kidnapped by American soldiers, stuffed into a black-ops prison, and tortured for years ... certainly has ample reason to be a terrorist NOW. I'm not happy about that, but I can hardly blame the victims for wanting to hit back.
