Yes quasi-Judy Miller - but first you gave the perpetual undying talking points to FoxNews

Yesterday Elizabeth "Can I say I was proved fucking right first?" Bumiller reported that 1 in 7 released Guantanamo detainees became "terrorizers".

Thus allowing the right-wing blogs to do what they always do when not vigilantly questioning the patriotism of blacks, latinos, muslims, and white Democrats and Independents...made Memeorandum, their awesome beyatch.

So it is worth noting, that this claim which will flow everlastingly and ever more loudly from the screamining "morans" is pretty much bullshit as even Bumiller admitted:

"there is some debate about whether you should say 'returned' because some of them were perhaps not engaged in terrorism, as we know -- some of them are being held there on vague charges."

Of course they are, and what is one of the unfortunate hang-ups of releasing innocent detainees? That their home governments either don't want them or will immediately find some bogus reason to imprison them (see Chinese Uyghurs).

Which is why your story in the NY Times said:

1 In 7 Detainees Rejoined Jihad, Pentagon Finds

Nice that Judy Miller and Fred Hiatt are working at the Times...or is it simply that Michael Gordon is writing both Bumiller's columns and headlines?
