Guantanamo Bay Update – Another Terrorist Freed By President Obama

Dear Military Families United Member and Supporter,

Sign Our Don’t Free Terrorists Petition

As you read in your morning paper, another detainee was freed yesterday and released in Afghanistan. Mohammed Jawad, an al Qaeda operative, was arrested by Afghan police in December 2002 for throwing a grenade into a vehicle containing two US troops and an Afghan interpreter. His actions wounded three people and today Jawad is free in the same country that our brave troops are fighting in right now.
Military Families United has been at the forefront of this issue and will continue to relentlessly fight to ensure that the most effective facilities are used to hold these dangerous terrorists; right now that facility is Guantanamo Bay. Below are some news articles that we wanted to share with you concerning Mohammed Jawad.

Former Guantanamo Bay detainee Mohammed Jawad is in Afghanistan and will be released into his family’s custody today.
Kirk Lippold, former USS Cole Commander and a senior fellow at Military Families United, decried that, “in a what has become a sadly familiar pattern of decisions, the Obama Administration has released without trial Mohammed Jawad, a terrorist who attacked and wounded two U.S. soldiers and an Afghan citizen.” Lippold called the release “just the latest example of dangerous decisions made by the Administration aimed at keeping a reckless campaign promise.”

“No coherent policy in the war on terror. No comprehensive plan in place to deal with the future of Guantanamo Bay detainees. No accountability for terrorists who harm our brave fighting forces,” he said.

  1. The only real dangerous terrorist we have is Obama, and I can’t believe he has not been tried yet. I guess when men choose to believe a lie for their own personal comfort anything is possible. I see these things as a complete lack of character in todays man.
