Recidivism amongst released prisoners by the Bush administration appears to be quite the problem. It's been reported by conservative media outlets and been a major talking point against the release of any more prisoners by the Obama administration to even moving remaining detainees to Illinois in the near future.
There's plenty of blame to go around for what happened Christmas day, but when one takes a look at it, some of the ones that have some serious explaining to do are conservatives. As much as I don't agree with his point of view, Allahpundit over at HotAir makes a rather valid point:
This reads like the plot of one of those over-the-top David Zucker attack ads against the left — except it wasn’t the left that presided over this one. The next interview with Dick or Liz Cheney should be pretty interesting, huh?
But what of the other prisoners that Robert Gates is wanting to return - some of them to Yemen, the place that's now being portrayed as the new Afghanistan? It's safe to say that no one really knows just yet, and that's why commenting on it would be beyond foolish. However, have the Uighurs that were released early this year had US eyes on them? There was a massive uproar from conservative media outlets initially, but now the Uighur story is all but gone. Did the Obama administration take special actions to insure that recidivism wouldn't happen?
