Yeah, that sounds Â and smells like Obumbler BS:
- A Pentagon spokesman said Thursday he doesn’t know whether the suicide bomber thatÂ blew up a bus full of Israeli tourists in BulgariaÂ was a former Guantanamo Bay detainee.
- LEFTISTS REJOICE AT MASS SLAUGHTER OF JEWISH KIDS—Pamela Geller
BreitbartÂ via Vlad:
Leftists who hate Israel can rejoice; their efforts at securing the release of aÂ Gitmo detaineeÂ and their subsequent lionizing of him allowed him to murder five Israelis in the bombing Wednesday in Burgas, Bulgarian. The bomber has been identified as Mehdi Ghezali, who was detained at Gitmo Bay in Cuba from 2002 to 2004.
“Sources are now saying that the jihadist’s identity is not clear”–Â His Hizballah membership appears clearer. “Hezbollah Is Blamed in Attack on Israeli Tourists in Bulgaria,” by Nicholas Kulish and Eric Schmitt in theÂ New York Times
Not only is Ghezali a demonstration of how Islamic antisemitism all too often is manifested in blood and murder; he is also a vivid illustration of how the Left’s vociferous opposition to anything and everything that the U.S. does to defend itself kills people. I wonder if Leftist lawyer Clive Stafford-Smith, whoÂ assured authorities that other Gitmo detainees deemed dangerous were actually harmless, will have any comment on this. (I knew Clive slightly when we were both students at the University of North Carolina; Clive, if you’re reading this, send me an email at director[at]jihadwatch.org: I’d love to interview you about Mehdi Ghezali and Guantanamo.)
Note also the role that mainstream media whitewashing of Islamic jihad played in this: instead of alerting Swedish citizens to the danger Ghezali posed, The Local downplayed his jihad activity — and no doubt smeared anyone who tried to sound the alarm as a greasy Islamophobe.
