While doing research for this article, I have discovered that the media totally protected President Obama from the beginning of his presidency and would not truthfully report the total number of Guantanamo inmates released by his administration.  All the information was being redirected to President Bush and what he had done.  

The Guantanamo detention camp was set up in 2002 to hold prisoners captured in U.S. counter-terrorism operations overseas. Obama considered it a stain on America’s reputation and wanted it closed. 

Here we have the latest Guantanamo Bay detainee who has returned to his old ways. 

Six radical Islamists were arrested in Bordeaux and Ile-de-France Monday on suspicion that they helped other Islamists travel to Syria to fight for terror groups in the region.


Sabir Mahfouz Lahmar was freed from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2009 after France agreed to accept him. Lahmar 48, is the oldest of the four men and two women who were arrested in Bordeaux and in Paris in raids on Monday. They are believed to have aided would-be jihadists with money and logistical help to get to Syria where the radical Islamists would receive training, fight for known terrorist groups.

Authorities in France stated that as of March this year at least 700 French nationals are fighting with terror groups in the Middle East  (Approx. 300 are thought to be women).

Earlier this month five other radical Islamists were arrested and found to have been hiding various weapons according to a Paris prosecutor. The suspects, who were between 18 and 24 years old, were arrested in various parts of France after police foiled a plot to attack a French presidential candidate’s headquarters weeks before.

Top academic on radical Islamism in France Gilles Kepel has warned that the Islamists are trying to take Europe down a path to civil war. He told Breitbart London in an exclusive interview in Paris earlier this month that the only solution to the problem is through education and described how Islamic radicalism had developed in Paris’s migrant suburbs.
