Senate Intel Chairman Burr on the Release of 15 Prisoners from Guantanamo Bay: Unconscionable

WASHINGTON –Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, made the following statement on the Obama administration’s decision to release 15 terrorists back into the Middle East:

“It is unconscionable that this administration continues to release known terrorists. Several terrorists released by the Obama administration have returned to the battlefield and re-engaged in attacks against coalition forces and our allies.  The administration continues to put our national security at risk in misguided attempts to fulfill campaign pledges and to cement the President’s legacy.”
