President Barack Obama has been moving swiftly to shut down Guantanamo Bay, the U.S. detainment facility in Cuba for captured terrorists and suspected terrorists.
The question floating on many people’s minds is what will happen to the detainees. Will they be set free? Will some be transferred to other facilities? Have the Gitmo experiences further endeared them to the ideals of violent jihad?
Apparently, according to a Time report, some are being sent to rehab in Saudi Arabia that treats devotion to jihad like alcoholism. Although at least two of the “rehabilitated” Jihadists have already returned to their old ways, the Saudis remain confident in the program.
I know what you’re thinking. I’m thinking it too.
“My name is Ahmed. I love jihad but it’s ruining my life.”
“My name is Mohammed and I’ve been explosive-free for two weeks now.”
Those geniuses at Comedy Central have also been tackling the closing of Gitmo.
Earlier in the week Jon Stewart interviewed Guantanamo detainee Gitmo!
And, after hearing of Guantanamo’s shutdown, Stephen Colbert released a captive from the secret prison underneath his desk.
