Good news from Gitmo

Finally, some national security news to cheer:

A U.S. judge refused to release two Guantanamo terrorism suspects on Tuesday and upheld the government’s authority to keep them, after ordering freedom last month for five prisoners whose case led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling.

Federal District Court Judge Richard Leon said in two separate rulings the government had shown enough evidence to justify holding Yemeni citizen Moath Hamza Amhed Al Alwi and Tunisian Hisham Sliti as “enemy combatants” linked to al Qaeda or Taliban forces.


The terror apologists in the human rights community are up in arm, of course. They want the dangerous detainees freed immediately.

But as I wrote in my column last month on Obama’s second-thoughts advisers and supporters now refining their position on preventive detention to accommodate reality: “Nothing clarifies the mind like a jihadi boomerang.
