Associated Content is reporting that Obama’s Terror Czar John Brennan says that 20% of the released terrorists going back to the battlefield to kill Americans and others “isn’t that bad.” In another “What the hell did you just say?!”-moment that’s becoming, sadly, increasingly common with Obama’s rogue terror czar, John Brennan was speaking at — of all places! — the Islamic Center of New York University just this past Saturday. Since it was the Islamic Center and all, what better venue for John Brennan to spout another completely shocking and widely condemnable opinion that just confirms all the prior criticism that’s rightfully been swirling around him for months! You know, just the same old, same old criticism that he’s not up to the job, is inept, or simply is too liberal to be effective at his post as terror czar.
Brennan’s stunning attitude of complacency toward the very real statistic that one-fifth of all released terrorists will immediately return to kill Americans referred to a now-notorious figure that made an appearance in a letter to Nancy Pelosi earlier this month. This 20%-figure was first found in a Pentagon study on recidivism rates of the terrorists who were held at Guantanamo Bay.
The context in which Brennan used that 20%-figure during his speech at the ironically appropriate Islamic Center at New York University was his comparison of terrorists and recidivism to mere, common criminals in the American penal system and recidivism there. In fact, as you will witness yourself in the following video, Brennan’s exact words on the subject were:
“People sometimes use that figure, 20%, say, ‘Oh, my goodness, one out of five detainees returned to some type of extremist activity.’ You know, the American penal system, the recidivism is up to something about 50% or so, as far as return to crime. 20% isn’t that bad.”
