 Cotton Statement on President Obama’s Decision to Transfer Nine Terrorists from Guantanamo Bay to Saudi Arabia

Washington, D.C.— Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on President Obama’s decision to transfer nine terrorists from Guantanamo Bay to Saudi Arabia:

“Today, President Obama transferred nine hardened terrorists from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, illustrating once again that President Obama prioritizes campaign promises and politics over our safety and security. While Saudi Arabia is an important ally in the fight against radical Islam, their track record in preventing Guantanamo detainees from returning to the battlefield is poor, and they share a border with the failed state of Yemen, home of AQAP.  The American people and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia deserve to know the full extent of past terrorist activities of the nine terrorists released today.”

  1. If we don’t “know the full extent of past terrorist activities”, then how does Cotton know these were “hardened terrorists” instead of poor schmucks who were in the wrong place at the wrong time? For a graduate of Harvard Law, Cotton seems to have no concept of the difference between “alleged” and “convicted”.
