CNN Report At Least 6000 Isis Fighters Were Allegedly Killed In Battles!***messymandella***


 
The coalition fighting ISIS has killed more than 6,000 fighters including half of the top command of the terror group, U.S. diplomatic officials said Thursday.
 
The number of fighters killed has not been publicly discussed before but was disclosed by the U.S. ambassador to Iraq who told Al Arabiya television earlier in the day that an estimated 6,000 fighters have been killed, saying it was having an “devastating” impact on ISIS.
 
The estimate calculated by U.S. Central Command finds more than 6,000 ISIS fighters have been killed in Iraq and Syria by coalition airstrikes, according to a U.S. military official. CENTCOM has kept a running estimate of fighters killed, but has not made it public.
 
U.S. intelligence estimates that ISIS has a total force of somewhere between 9,000 to 18,000 fighters. However, it is also believed the group can draw on thousands of other fighters whose loyalty shifts and could muster a force upwards of 31,000 total.
 
Until now, the Pentagon has stayed away discussing the matter, other than to estimate that thousands of fighters may have been killed. Speaking to reporters Thursday, Rear Admiral John Kirby was adamant that the US is not keeping a “body count,” and said it would be wrong to state that there is such a count.

Why In The Hell IS Guantanamo Bay Still Accepting Prisoners, If It Is Closing? LIES***messymandella***

Guantanamo, which remains open, has not been mentioned in the president’s annual speech since.

The proposed road to closure has been arduous and slow. In December 2009, Obama signed a presidential memorandum ordering Attorney General Eric Holder and Defense Secretary Robert Gates to acquire an Illinois state prison, which would serve as a replacement for Guantanamo. In May 2010, Congress blocked funding for the prison there, and all future replacement detention facilities in the U.S.

By June 2010, the push to shutter the detention camp began to lose steam. Political opposition and competing national priorities, The New York Times wrote, made it unlikely the president would fulfill his promise before the end of 2013….”

No more excuses.

Close Gitmo and stop the torture.

It is not an American Issue, It is a human Issue to do what is right!

These people have families and family members in poverty and turmoil, because of an unjust imprisonment.

These prisoner’s  lives are  being unjustly stolen, no different from slavery. The government knows it is happening, but refuse to do anything about it, shameful!

No more excuses!

If you are determined to close down Gitmo, why are you accepting new prisoners?

Death of a Prisoner: Tragedy In Guantánamo Bay! DAMN, GITMO STILL OPENED?***messymandella***


 

Torture and abuse cost Americans live .I learned in Iraq that the No. 1 reason foreign fighters flocked there to fight were the abuses carried out at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo. Our policy of torture was directly and swiftly recruiting fighters for al-Qaeda in Iraq…How anyone can say that torture keeps Americans safe is beyond me — unless you don’t count American soldiers as Americans.”Matthew Alexander, leader of an interrogations team assigned to a Special Operations task force in Iraq in 2006.- From The Washington Post

“The difference between us and the enemy is how we treat the enemy.”-Rear. Adm. John Hutson, former Navy lawyerUPI.com

“It gives us a very, very bad name, not just internationally. I have a great deal of difficulty understanding how we can hold someone, pick someone up, particularly someone who might be an American citizen–even if they were caught somewhere abroad–acting against American interests, and hold them without ever giving them an opportunity to appear before a magistrate.”--James A. Baker III, former U.S. Secretary of StateLA Times
