The New York Daily News reports:
Blaming Obama and tweeting false facts — it’s Tuesday morning on Twitter with President Trump. Trump in a tweet inaccurately blamed former President Obama for releasing “122 vicious prisoners” from Guantanamo Bay — something the previous President did not even come close to doing.
In fact, U.S. intelligence data shows it is former President George W. Bush who freed nearly all of the prisoners Trump tweeted about. Trump wrote shortly after 7 a.m., “122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!”
The tweet came within an hour of the Trump-friendly “Fox & Friends” tweeting a story about how at least 122 former Guantanamo prisoners have engaged in terrorism after their release. But an Intelligence Community report on re-engaged detainees shows that Bush allowed nearly all of those releases.
122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!
