So we whacked another guy we released from Gitmo.
SANAA, Yemen (AP) — The Yemen-based branch of al-Qaida confirmed on Wednesday that the group's No. 2 figure, a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner, was killed in a U.S. drone strike.
Hurrah and Woo Hoo! We can do a little dead tango dance to celebrate. But I have a question. why do we have to let them go from Gitmo before we can kill them? I mean it seems a little inefficient to say the least. This guy is like the 50th free range former, orange jump suitee we have scattered into his component molecules.
Does Obama have some deal with the drone manufacturers where he gets a volume discount? Is a policy of catch, release, incinerate somehow more humane than free room and board for life? And since the miserable bastards we still have in the HellHole Express are trying to starve themselves, can't we just stop giving them the goose-fattening, Ensure up-the-nose treatment and let them expire naturally? Just seems like a better way to handle it, but hey drone jockeys need practice too I guess.
