U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (IN-02), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on the release of Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard Abdel Malik Ahmed Abdel Wahab al-Rahabi from Guantanamo Bay: “The terrorist detainees being released from Guantanamo Bay – like Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard – are the worst of the worst. The administration’s plan to recklessly free at least two dozen terrorists this summer in an effort to close Gitmo puts American lives at risk. That is why I introduced a bill to immediately ban transfers for the rest of the year, or until new safeguards in the National Defense Authorization Act are signed into law.”
