Gitmo alumni keep on truckin'!

Despite the fact Guantanamo is supposedly such a force for oppression and civil rights violation that Obama has sworn to close it down, the Pentagon reports that 61 former inmates have returned to the ranks of active terrorism.

For some reason I'm suddenly remembering Nicholas Cage in a certain scene from Raising Arizona. Standing in for Mr. Cage in our production today will be Achmed the terrorist. Playing the parts of the parole board officials will be President Obama and Sen. Harry Reid

Obama:
They've got a name for people like you, Achmed. That name is called "recidivism."

Harry Reid: Repeat offender!

Obama: Not a pretty name, is it Achmed?

Achmed:
No, sir. That's one bonehead name, but that ain't me any more.

Obama: You're not just telling us what we want to hear?

Achmed:
No, sir, no way.

Harry Reid:
'Cause we just want to hear the truth.

Achmed:
Well, then I guess I am telling you what you want to hear.

Obama: Boy, didn't we just tell you not to do that?

Achmed:
Yes, sir.

Obama: Okay, then.

CUT TO: Achmed sprints from the gates yelling "Allah Akhbar!!", jumps into a waiting car, which promptly rams the courthouse and EXPLODES.

OK, I made that last part up, but close enough.

There was some good news in that report, though. For the mainstream media anyway.
"Propaganda does not qualify as a terrorist activity," the Pentagon said in a statement.

When the leave Gitmo, they will all get on a plane like the one in Con Air and Sweet Home Alabama will be playing as they take off.

Achmed will be flying the plane, Obama and Biden will be tied up like Steve Buscemi (Hannibal Lector style) and Harry will be dancing like the cross-dresser.
