Sinema’s chickens come home to roost: Defense Officials Say 20 to 30 Former Gitmo Detainees Have Joined ISIS and Other
Syrian Terrorist Groups
(PHOENIX, AZ) – Today, Fox News reports that DoD officials suspect 20 to 30 individuals, who were formerly detained at the U.S. facility at Guantanamo Bay, now have joined ISIS and other groups fighting in Syria.
“Clearly, Kyrsten Sinema has put our country in danger. Congress must show strength and resolve to our enemies. When liberals began talking about closing Guantanamo Bay, our country rightly became worried about recidivism. Now it has come home to roost. Terrorists who were in our custody are now joining an organization that has been threatening our nation, once again putting them in a position to do harm to America. Kyrsten Sinema and her allies have created this harmful contingent, and they lack the courage to fix it,” said James Harris, spokesman for the Wendy Rogers campaign.“The facts are irrefutable. Kyrsten Sinema voted to allow terrorists to be transferred to American soil and tried in U.S. courts. Sinema also voted against an amendment that would have eliminated funding for the release or transfer of individuals held in Guantanamo Bay. Even in the face of mounting danger from ISIS, Sinema has stood by these votes. The question is – will Sinema stand by her whimsy now that former detainees have joined ISIS and are once again threatening our nation? Kyrsten Sinema has weakened our nation. It’s time to send a military veteran to Congress who gets it – that would be Lieutenant Colonel Wendy Rogers.”
