Gitmo alums continue to go back to terrorism

Guardian:
Guantánamo ex-prisoners continue to turn up on battlefield, says US

Two confirmed as joining militant groups in first six months of 2016 – but rate was much higher in Bush years, says intelligence assessment
I think it was a mistake to release any of these guys before the end of the war.  President Obama is labouring under the false premise that  keeping them is a recruiting tool for the enemy.  The evidence suggest otherwise, since the number of Islamic terrorists has increased dramatically since the releases took place.  There appears to be no correlation between the number of prisoners held at Gitmo and the number of jihadis recruited.
