As Twitchy reported this week, Congress approved an amendment to its defense appropriations bill barring the administration from spending any money to relocate prisoners currently housed at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba, even as President Obama’s election year efforts to close the facility and relocate prisoners to stateside prisons seemed to be running out of steam and support.
Today, Fox News reported that Jihad Ahmed Mustafa Dhiab, a Syrian national released to Uruguay’s custody in 2014 along with five other prisoners, has gone missing. Law enforcement is conducting a search and believes Dhiab might have entered Brazil. Or not.

@FoxNews We had him, we let him go and now we are searching for him again? Begs the question, why let him go in the first place? Ridiculous

The Washington Post recently reported that at least a half-dozen Americans are believed to have been killed in attacks perpetrated by former prisoners who were released from Guantanamo to the custody of foreign countries and returned to doing what they do best.
@FoxNews I'm sure he's not up to anything bad.

@FoxNews Look in Texas or AZ because he'll be coming across our border somewhere, no doubt.

@FoxNews Should find him in one of our night clubs in about 3 months.

@FoxNews it's the AR-15's fault. Everything is.
