Bush Released Alleged Architects of Failed NW Airlines Bombing to "Art Therapy" Program

Many conservatives are in high gear accusing President Obama of being soft on terrorism, presumably because he has not started a nuclear war against al Qaeda. But missing from some of the ranting is the following information. Two of the al Qaeda leaders who allegedly planned the recent failed bombing of a Northwest Airlines plane were released from US custody by the Bush administration. Bush sent them to an "art therapy" rehabilitation" program in Saudi Arabia. Apparently, the program did not work.

Here is a clip from an ABC News story on this issue:

Two of the four leaders allegedly behind the al Qaeda plot to blow up a Northwest Airlines passenger jet over Detroit were released by the U.S. from the Guantanamo prison in November, 2007, according to American officials and Department of Defense documents. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the Northwest bombing in a Monday statement that vowed more attacks on Americans.

American officials agreed to send the two terrorists from Guantanamo to Saudi Arabia where they entered into an "art therapy rehabilitation program" and were set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials.

What, art therapy does not work on terrorists? I am so disappointed to hear it.

Hey Mr. Hutchinson, I was wondering if you had read either of these articles today:

http://fdlaction.firedoglake.com/2009/12/11/cms-excise-tax-on-insurance-will-make-your-insurance-coverage-worse-and-cause-almost-no-reduction-in-nhe/
Where are the mobs with the pitchforks and torches when you truly need them?

I can't wait to see how some conservatives might try to use this as a segue to eliminate art programs in public schools. As far as I'm concerned, nothing is past a suspension of disbelief for what will be the conservatives' next move.

I resent the whole bunch of corrupt, immoral incompetents from the last administration, but considering how many apparently innocent men were imprisoned in Guantanamo, I'm not criticizing them for this. If anything they should have freed a lot more.
