Importing Terrorists

Obama wants to close down Guantanamo Bay. Joe Biden reassures the US press that there are no plans to allow the released prisoners to remain in America (but that's only until their lawyers start claiming that they'll be persecuted if sent anywhere else). And now the EU is offering to take some of those released-

Britain moved closer to taking in foreign terror suspects last night as it emerged the EU may accept up to 60 Guantanamo Bay detainees.

France has drawn up plans for EU countries to offer homes to dozens of the inmates so Barack Obama can shut the camp.

There are 245 prisoners left at the military base, but U.S. authorities are unable to send many of them back to their home countries amid fears they will face persecution.

Proponents of relasing these people argue that their rate of returning to terrorism is only about 12%. As if that makes it okay to let them back into society. So let's say that six or maybe seven of the 60 the EU wants to take return to terrorism- what damage will they cause and how many victims will they be able to claim?

How dare these EU leaders put their citizens at risk like this.
