Welfare for Gitmo Detainees?

This just stuns me. It shouldn't, but it does.

[National Intelligence Director Dennis] Blair also said the Obama administration is still wrestling with what to do with the remaining 240 detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, which the president has ordered closed.

Some of the detainees, deemed non-threatening, may be released into the United States as free men, Blair confirmed. Blair said the former prisoners would have get some sort of assistance to start their new lives in the United States. "We can't put them out on the street," he said.

Really? We know that at least 61 of those already released are already engaged in militant activities. Those are just the ones we know about.

Let's give them welfare, build them a house, fix them up with a nice "green" car, and see how they do, Okay? Brotherly love and all that.

It gives a whole new meaning to the term "bailout."

How did this comment get buried in an article whose headline is about the stability of Mexico? I cannot believe this is even being considered, let alone publicly voiced...

I just don't know what to say about this, due to my burning anger. Here we have a bunch of people who were bent on slashing the thoats of every infidel American, and the Obama administration wants to take care of them by giving them welfare. Yet, this is the same adminstration who wanted American military veterans with service connected injuries to pay for their own medical are for their injuries?
Like I said, my anger burns of this frigging unbelievable madness.

You have to concede that Obama will pay any price and bear any burden to stick it to America.
