Maybe Obama should re-think that whole closing Gitmo thing

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the men behind the Christmas airplane plot were released from Guantanamo Bay in 2007. 

Yes, this would make it a Bush screw-up, unrelated to Obama.  That doesn’t mean that Obama should do him one worse, though. 

And incidentally,

American officials agreed to send the two terrorists to Saudi Arabia where they entered into an “art therapy rehabilitation program” and were set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials, ABC News reported.

Are you as shocked as I am that an “art therapy rehabilitation program” failed to actually rehabilitate?

Ann Althouse has more.

Update: White House,apparently undeterred by silly threats of a guy managing to sneak a bomb onto a plane and failing to detonate it through pure dumb luck, still plans to send (some) detainees to Yemin.  (HT: Ann Althouse).  Hey, Obama, how about you listen to me on something more important than just public perception?
