ALERT: High-Profile Gitmo Detainee Rearrested
It seems another former Guantanamo Bay detainee has been re-arrested for returning to terrorism. He already graduated from Saudi Arabia`s militant rehab` program once, but he`s now being returned to the Saudis again.
From the story: Abu al-Hareth Muhammad al-Oufi was one of two Saudis released from Guantanamo who re-emerged as al-Qaida operatives in a militant video released a day after President Barack Obama signed an executive order to close the prison within a year.

We can`t trust other countries to do the hard work of bringing terrorists to justice. Al-Oufi stated his aim to strike America on a video released barely weeks ago, and many of the current detainees at Gitmo state their goals regularly and proudly. We must remain well equipped to defend ourselves against these violent fanatics, and that means, among other things, that we need to keep Gitmo open.
That`s why Move America Forward has been working so hard on bringing this issue to the fore and pushing back against President Obama`s dangerous executive order.
