With the magic transformation of Gitmo detainees (Islamic fighters captured on the battlefield) into full-fledged resettled refugees to Uruguay, the Obama Administration has made yet another move to completely destroy any vestiges of good feelings people may hold toward those labeled refugees.
His State Department’s recent announcement of a new “refugee” program for teenaged wannabe-legal immigrants from Central America was pretty over the top, but this latest “refugee” fraud takes the cake.
As we said yesterday when reporting about the Uruguay deal, the word “refugee” is becoming a very dirty word.
And, by the way, what is to stop the six former Islamic fighters from heading directly to the US border?

Outgoing Uruguayan President José Mujica has made clear that Uruguay would not hold or restrict the six Guantanamo detainees who were recently resettled in his country.
“The first day that they want to leave, they can leave,” said Mujica in a Spanish-language interview with state television TNU.
The release of four Syrians, a Tunisian and a Palestinian on Saturday represented the largest single group to leave Guantanamo since 2009, according to U.S. officials.
In the interview Mujica — a former leftist guerrilla who was jailed during Uruguay’s 1973-1985 military dictatorship — said Guantanamo “was not a jail, it’s a kidnapping den,” adding that a jail suggests a “minimum of jurisdiction.”
Right now the Marxists and the Muslims are as cozy as can be, but when it comes to the final battles for world domination, what is your best guess as to who would prevail (assuming we have been destroyed)? Just curious!
