At a Tuesday evening conference with his transition team and incoming staffers, President-elect Joe Biden floated the idea of granting amnesty and American citizenship to the 40 ISIS insurgents currently housed at Guantanamo Bay’s Camp Delta, a maximum-security disciplinary block created to hold the world’s most notorious terrorists, many of whom have been at GITMO since 9/11.
Two staffers who were present told Real Raw News that Biden’s decision was in part based on conversations he had with spokespeople from Amnesty International, a non-governmental human rights advocacy group, and the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), whose stated mission is to lobby on behalf of people who have been wrongly incarcerated.
Chief legal council for Amnesty International Ashlyn Conway shared Biden’s opinion that the US government was illegally and arbitrarily imprisoning ISIS soldiers based on spurious allegations and flimsy evidence, or no evidence at all. Amnesty International, she said, would work alongside his administration to secure the prisoners’ release.
Lex Davenport, operations manager for overseas assignments for UNHRC, however, was suspicious of Biden’s duplicitous nature.
“Many at GITMO were there during the eight years you served as vice president to Obama. You did nothing to help them then. Why now?” Davenport reportedly asked.
Biden laid blame on Obama, our sources said. He claimed to have begged Obama to free the detainees and dismantle Gitmo, but Obama refused.
“Biden said he had no influence over Obama, but now, as president, he could do what should have been done all those years ago. When Davenport hesitated, Biden produced some real kooky suggestions, which he gave at the meeting,” one source said.
Biden’s plan to Americanize radical jihadis included fast-track citizenship, free college tuition, free housing, prepaid debit cards, absolution for crimes committed in Allah’s name, and other perks. If those weren’t enough, he suggested holding a candlelight vigil for fallen ISIS “freedom fighters” at the White House Rose Garden.
“The alacrity with which most staff seemed delighted by this idea was absolutely mind-blowing. His soon to be chief-of-staff Ron Klain, National Security Advisor Nancy Mceldowney, Jake Sullivan, Dana Remus—the list goes on. They were like yeah let’s do this,” a source explained.
The only meaningful dissent came from Biden’s pick for Secretary of Defense, retired four-star General Lloyd Austin, who served as commander of United States Central Command (CENTCOM) and was the commander of Operation New Dawn in Iraq in 2011. He vehemently opposed Biden’s idea of Americanizing dangerous terrorists because, he said, the cells they represent had infiltrated American institutions, everything from gas stations to government to teaching at the highest levels of academia.
“It’s simply not doable, sir,” Gen. Austin told Biden. “These animals will pretend to be your friend just to secure freedom, and when you’re not looking, they’ll shout “Allahu Akbar” at the top of their lungs while plunging a knife in your back.”
But Biden, our sources said, wasn’t swayed by Austin’s argument, and expressed an unwavering certainty that showing prisoners compassion would awaken in them vigorous patriotism, not to Allah but to an enlightened, liberalized, and compassionate United States of America.
