Since Guantanamo Bay in Cuba started being used as a prison for terrorists, there have been 620 prisoners released. Of that, 107 are known to have gone back to terrorism and 77 are suspected of it. The numbers are from the opening of the prison facilities at Gitmo to current day. The numbers would seem to indicate that the type of prisoners released need re-examined.

Reasons DNI says terrorists go back to terrorism

The Director of National Intelligence report, seen here, has some reasoning as to why the terrorists go back to attacking people.

Section 307 (a) (2) An assessment of the likelihood that such detainees will engage in terrorism.

Based on trends identified during the past eleven years, we assess that some detainees currently at GTMO will seek to reengage in terrorist or insurgent activities after they are transferred. Transfers to countries with ongoing conflicts and internal instability as well as active recruitment by insurgent and terrorist organizations pose particular problems. While enforcement of transfer conditions may deter reengagement by many former detainees and delay reengagement by others, some detainees who are determined to reengage will do so regardless of any transfer conditions, albeit probably at a lower rate than if they were transferred without conditions.

Section 307 (a) (2)An assessment of the likelihood that such detainees will communicate with persons in terrorist organizations.

Former GTMO detainees routinely communicate with each other, families of other former detainees, and previous associates who are members of terrorist organizations. The reasons for communication span from the mundane (reminiscing about shared experiences) to the nefarious (planning terrorist operations). We assess that some GTMO detainees transferred in the future also will communicate with other former GTMO detainees and persons in terrorist organizations. We do not consider mere communication with individuals or organizations—including other former GTMO detainees—an indicator of reengagement. Rather, the motives, intentions, and purposes of each communication are taken into account when assessing whether the individual has reengaged.

One terrorist expert’s opinion on the matter

Here, via Fox News, is the opinion of a terrorism expert.

Thomas Joscelyn, a terrorism analyst with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, said releasing Guantanamo inmates increases the danger they will return to jihad.

“Once a detainee is transferred from Guantanamo to his home country, or a third country, there is no guarantee that appropriate security measures will be put in place,” Joscelyn said in an email. “Yet, the U.S. government frequently requires the receiving country to enact such measures as part of the transfer agreement. Thus, even detainees who are known to be very dangerous have rejoined the fight after leaving Guantanamo.”

There are most likely several options available to prevent this, but the government itself is not going to take the right steps because of bureaucracy. The problem has been going on since the opening of the Gitmo prison and will most likely continue till a solution is set in stone.
