Giuliani: New Gitmo Releases Could Be Obama's 'Craziest' Move Ever

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox News and criticized President Obama's decision to release more terrorists from Guantanamo.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani slammed the Obama administration this morning on "Fox and Friends" for releasing five Yemeni terror suspects from Guantanamo Bay. 

The five, who all have ties to al Qaeda, were transferred to Estonia and Oman. 

"You've got to be out of your mind to let killers go, at a time when people are being attacked and killed by Islamic terrorists," Giuliani said. "What is going on inside the White House? This could be the craziest thing the President of the United States has ever did."

The prisoners had been held for more than 12 years at the prison. Since 2009, they have been cleared for release, but the U.S. didn't send the prisoners back to Yemen because the government is battling an Al Qaeda insurgency. 

Giuliani criticized Obama for releasing the terrorists who he believes are going to kill Americans.

"On the front page of the New York Post today, we have an almost-attack on the United States," Giuliani explained. "And he's releasing killers to kill Americans! When you take the oath of office, you vow to preserve, protect, and defend the United States. Not let killers go who are going to kill Americans."

  1. The premise for the GITMO detention center -- as I understood it -- was to keep dangerous adversaries under lock and key until the end of hostilities. POTUS simply rejects the premise. He rejects the concept of detaining those who would kill us. It would not matter where they were detained. Shame on him. God help the innocents who will be harm's way.
