Ex-Navy SEAL: Gitmo Releases Are 'Dangerous'

Friday, 16 Jan 2015 06:43 PM

President Barack Obama's release of five Guantanamo terror suspects from Yemen — the country with ties to the "Charlie Hebdo" execution squad — makes no sense, former Navy SEAL and FBI agent Jonathan Gilliam says.

"I don’t know if it’s just pure incompetence or if they're that dead set on trying to make the world all talk and get along, which is never going to happen. I'll tell you one thing — that's dangerous," Gilliam said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"We had about 800 people one time in Guantanamo, many of them high level leaders in the Islamic movement or just warriors.

"We've now taken them and systematically spread them all over the world.... What I'm seeing is people who are hardened on the battlefield now spread out all over the place."

Gilliam — president of United States Continued Service, which helps employ military veterans — said those who support free speech need to know how to protect themselves.

"You need to protect yourself if you're going to say whatever you want to say. It's your responsibility," he said.

"You're not going to walk up to Mike Tyson and tell him he's small, you're probably going to get punched in the face. The same thing goes here."
