from 61 freed detainees said back in terror :

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- U.S. military officials say dozens of detainees released from the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, military prison camp have likely returned to terrorism activities.

A likely story to "justify" indefinite incarceration/torment of "enemy combatants." If they did become terrorists after being released, it's quite possible that they did so out of a desire for revenge, and that they are willing to die committing terrorism rather than risking being thrown back into the neo-con gulag. It's even possible that their supposed return to terrorism was facilitated by the US in order to vindicate Dark Dick.
