Why don't you give them guns while you're at it?

The Director of National Intelligence [sic] announced yesterday that some Guantanamo detainees will be resettled in America and given living stipends.

There's no possible commentary on this story. But here's some background on the "non-threatening" detainees the DNI is talking about:

None of the 17 Uighurs are master terrorists on par with the likes of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. They were mostly new recruits at the time of their capture. However, as I have argued before, they are all affiliated with and/or members of a designated terrorist organization, received training at a training camp in the al Qaeda/Taliban stronghold of Tora Bora, and have admitted that they were trained by two known terrorists. And, on top of that, the group that trained them threatened to attack the Olympic Games in China last year.

Good to know we have experts who have it all figured out in charge of things. Here's hoping there's no spectacular attack on, I don't know, the Chinese embassy, anytime soon. Let alone some other target(s) selected by embittered ex-detainees eager for revenge on the Great Satan.
