It seems to be a new Cheneyite talking point that x% of those already released from Guantanamo have “returned to the battlefield.” From the evidence I’ve seen the claim itself is questionable. But if it’s true, how is this a point in favor of Cheney and the Bush administration?
Now Liz Cheney is explaining how she and her father and the rest in the administration thought that some rehabilitation program would be more effective. Are they for real about that?
Late Update: On the potential flimsiness of the underlying claims, see this.
