    I would say the issue is not mute because the cast of the story implies that everyone released is a former jihadist.

    For example, at the very end the reporter asked an official about a released guy (not a Saudi and not in the Saudi program) who suicide bombed.  The Saudi official said (paraphrase) "I can assure you anyone like that in Saudi Arabia is not being let out of prison."  Well . . . that seems to imply something that the reporter didn't follow up on, that most of the Saudis are not believed to be threats.

      but no others....just as they have since 911 with OBL. If you are Saudi you are not to be killed and are correctable with some perks.
