Brace for spit-take: John Kerry says Gitmo detainee who returned to al-Qaeda ‘not supposed to be doing that’

It’s a John Kerry two-fer these past couple of days, because not only has he pointed out how Obama’s ISIS “strategy” made the problem worse, but the secretary of state was also good enough to offer a summary of this administration’s foreign policy in under ten words.

Kerry was asked about a Gitmo detainee released by the administration in 2012 who was recently spotted on an al-Qaeda recruitment video. Why did that happen?

Appearing before the State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Kerry made the statement while testifying about the State Department’s budget request for the fiscal year 2017.

During the hearing, Sen. Mark Kirk (R., Ill.) asked Kerry for his thoughts on Ibrahim al Qosi, the former Guantanamo detainee who is now a prominent al Qaeda leader, and had staffers hold up a picture of the terrorist for Kerry to see.
Kerry paused for a moment before saying to Kirk, “Well, Senator, he’s not supposed to be doing that. And there are consequences for that, and there will be. But apart from that, the fact is that we’ve got people who’ve been held without charges for 13 years, 14 years in some cases. That’s not American, that’s not how we operate.”

“He’s not supposed to be doing that”?


Yep, America’s in the best of hands.
