Obama campaigned on the promise to do so, something that cheered those who say the prison at the U.S. Naval base violates the human rights of America’s terrorist enemies.
Obama swore to protect our Constitution, which means his top responsibility is to protect the American people. It is shocking that one of his first actions would be to close a prison that keeps Americans safe from admitted terrorists
Obama signed orders to close the “Gitmo” detention center and shut down secret overseas CIA prisons, review military war crimes trials, and ban the harshest interrogation methods of suspected terrorists.
The problem with Guantanamo is, if you’re going to close it, where are you going to put those people?
Those who are members of Al Qaeda were dangerous to begin with, but those who were innocent of wanting/trying to harm the U.S. are righteously pissed off, and way more dangerous, and will be more dangerous yet after they talk to an attorney. And, if the attorneys can’t help, they can always contact Raul Gonzales and Resado from the Philippines. What the hell would you do?
The people in San Francisco are the ones making the big noise about it, if they want to bring [the detainees] to the United States, I think they ought to put them in Alcatraz and let Obama’s good friends in San Francisco deal with these deadly combatants who, in the past, when released from Guantanamo, have gone back on the battlefield to kill Americans. Alcatraz Island had a reputation of being inescapable and housed the worst bloodletters and badmen the nation produced, including Al Capone.
The best place for these detainees would be, equally divided, in Esperon and Gloria’s basements. , and, using the spoils of their many year rape of the country’s coffers would have plenty to host these persons they were most anxious to invite over to our country’s special territory for some water(boarding) and eats– even insisting upon tube-feeding the eats upon occasion to assure the detainees would be around when they left office, which, as it happens is now– so, yes, let them take up the slack until permanent homes for their guests can be found.Gloria and Hermit won’t have much to do now anyway will they? They have the PSG to help,Palparan will be on hand to assure the guests’ safety etc. Perhaps a perfect solution to this knotty problem.
The Obama administration has yet to resolve where to put those detainees or how to prosecute them for their alleged war crimes.
