Massive Taxpayer Payoff to Gitmo Terrorists

Only the most bloodthirsty Islamic maniacs earn the honor of a stay at Guantanamo Bay. Unfortunately for the terrorists, even the most well-earned vacation can't last forever. Fattened up on gourmet halal meals, some have had to return to the daily grind of murdering the innocent. But at least the British government is mitigating the disappointment with massive handouts of taxpayer money:

Around a dozen men who accused British security forces of colluding in their transfer overseas are to get millions in compensation from the UK government.
Some of the men, who are all British citizens or residents, were detained at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp in Cuba.
At least six of them alleged UK forces were complicit in their torture before they arrived at Guantanamo.

Only six of them? The rest must not have read the al Qaeda manual that instructs all captured terrorists to pretend they've been tortured. As the enemy well knows, our own sanctimonious liberal idiocy is their most effective weapon against us.

Odds that the terrorists really were tortured in any genuine sense are remote. However…

In May, the Court of Appeal ruled that the government could not rely on secret evidence to defend itself against the six cases, saying allegations of wrongdoing had to be heard in public.

Therefore the government has to pay off the terrorists to avoid assisting their cause by releasing secret information to the public.

Once again we see that Islam is only an opportunistic infection. The underlying disease that makes us vulnerable to it is moonbattery.

Binyam Mohamed: among the terrorists who hit the taxpayer jackpot.

On a tip from Ianto.
