Default Re: WHAT? My taxes are now going to pay for the released terrorists?

President Barack Obama's intelligence chief confirmed Thursday that some Guantanamo inmates may be released on US soil and receive assistance to return to society.
"If we are to release them in the United States, we need some sort of assistance for them to start a new life," said National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair at his first press conference.

"You can't just put them on the street," he added. "All that is work in progress."
Maybe we can set them up with pensions paid for by all the money we could be saving by forcing military veterans to use private health insurance to pay for medical care traditionally paid for by the VA. After all, these folks are so much more deserving of the taxpayers' money than our own veterans are.
