Each time he put his foot in his mouth, I hope to catch him and take a picture. The latest blame is Obama, of course, who he said let 122 prisoners out of GITMO who returned to the battlefield. What is wrong is the number. G. W. Bush returned 113 of them and Obama, 9.
At any rate, there is plenty of room at GITMO for the President and his family and associates who probably broke laws that will lead to Trump's impeachment.
"THE TOPLINE: Guantanamo Bay is back on President Trump's radar after the Pentagon said Monday that a former detainee was killed in a recent airstrike in Yemen.
On Tuesday, Trump issued one of his signature early morning tweets about the number of former Guantanamo detainees who have returned to terrorism. But he incorrectly blamed former President Obama for the entire number.
"122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!" Trump wrote.
Trump appeared to be responding to a "Fox and Friends" report about the former detainee killed by a U.S. airstrike against al Qaeda's Yemeni branch.
The morning show cited a September report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) that said 122 former detainees have been confirmed to be re-engaging in terrorism. But that number breaks down to 113 released by former President George W. Bush and nine released by Obama."
