In a plot twist which surprised no one who dwells full-time in reality, a terrorist released from Gitmo committed one final act of terrorism. He went out with a boom, not a whimper. Which he would’ve done had he stayed firmly locked behind caged doors, fed a diet of whatever the heck he wanted, because Gitmo is the Fairmont Hotel of prisons. But more on that later. This story isn’t maddening because a released Gitmo detainee committed another act of terror. Sure, we f***ing told you so. But what makes this particular case so bombastically frustrating is the £1 million from the British government awarded to him. Not for Gitmo’s Best Beard of the Block award. But over how he was treated at Gitmo.
The British Islamic State fighter who carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq was an “enemy of the state” who should never have been paid £1 million compensation by the Government “on merit”, Tony Blair’s former counter-terrorism adviser has said.
Lord Carlile, who served as the Government’s independent reviewer of terrorism legislation from 2001 to 2011, said the former Guantanamo Bay detainee should not have been given a “penny” because “plainly he was a terrorist”.
Jamal al-Harith, a Muslim convert born Ronald Fiddler who detonated a car bomb at an Iraqi army base near Mosul, was released from the US detention camp in 2004 and successfully claimed compensation after saying British agents knew or were complicit in his mistreatment.
Earlier this week, Isil named al-Harith as the man who had blown himself up in the car bombing at the Iraqi army base, and released a picture of him.
Oh, that’s not the only time either. See 12 Gitmo Prisoners Released. They’ve Already Killed Americans and Even MORE Newly Released Gitmo Terrorists Return to Battlefield… We have a theory around this little corner of the internet: terrorists are rather crappy human specimens. When given the opportunity to get their terroristy ways on, they often do. Kind of like if you leave a toddler with a set of finger paints, he’ll be sure to plaster his Jackson Pollack-like “art” all over your precious space. We call this “predictability” and we’d suggest any errant leftist out there look it up. Just set down the finger paints first. We know you’re stressed out with all the trappings of reality, but think of your keyboard.
You know how the Shapiro-coined phrase goes: “Facts don’t care about your feelings?” Well, neither do terrorists. Actually, that’s not completely accurate. Terrorists do care about your feelings. They care about erasing all feelings by severing your head from your body. They care about how you’d feel with ball bearings shooting through your feelings after they detonate themselves while screaming Allahu Akbar, you ungrateful infidel.
So rather than awarding these bombastic cretins millions of dollars… maybe we should, I don’t know… not award them anything at all. Except a one way ticket to a detention center nearest hell. Which, incidentally, is hardly Gitmo. That place is as much a “terrible prison” as Lena Dunham is a sexy swimsuit model.
