More Gitmo Detainees To Be Released

As so often is the case Obama’s policy on terror is fundamentally flawed
From failing to notify Congress of the Bergdahl Taliban swap clearly in violation of the law
To the failure to confront ISIS when it was in the open, convoys of sitting ducks
To the failure to recognize jihad as terror and to show in the fight a bit more pluck
Now this administration is in a full court press
To a flawed campaign promise to address
More detainees will soon from Gitmo be released
Even though their desire to kill Americans has not diminished or ceased
These fanatics have but one purpose in their lives which still remains
Martyrdom through killing Americans is throughout their fiber ingrained
Just as an alcoholic cannot stop after the first drink or the addict after the first high
A jihadist having tasted blood will want more even if it means he dies
Why would any sane person release die hard combatants so to the struggle they can return?
How many more suicide bombings or IEDs does it take for that lesson to be learned
The only way a Gitmo detainee should ever be allowed to leave
Would be a not guilty at a military tribunal trial so achieved
Once again the emperor around Congress is making an end run
With no more detainees in custody closing Gitmo is as good as done.
