What Could Go Wrong? Obama Calls for Club Gitmo Fiends to Be Moved to the United States, Says It Never Should Have Been Opened

Just in time for them to get their “free” ObamaCare! And quite a convenient distraction from his 436 scandals.

As President, I have tried to close GTMO. I transferred 67 detainees to other countries before Congress imposed restrictions to effectively prevent us from either transferring detainees to other countries, or imprisoning them in the United States. These restrictions make no sense. After all, under President Bush, some 530 detainees were transferred from GTMO with Congress’s support. When I ran for President the first time, John McCain supported closing GTMO. No person has ever escaped from one of our super-max or military prisons in the United States. Our courts have convicted hundreds of people for terrorism-related offenses, including some who are more dangerous than most GTMO detainees. Given my Administration’s relentless pursuit of al Qaeda’s leadership, there is no justification beyond politics for Congress to prevent us from closing a facility that should never have been opened.

Never should have been opened? What would he have done after 9/11? We know he did nothing after 9/1/12.

    The whiny bitch had two years with a supermajority in the Senate and a solid majority in the House. If he had wanted to own doing it, he could have.

    He loves issuing edicts. Issue yet another.

    There is no doubt that this is a distraction from Benghazi and the IRS scandal. It’s also allowing Rubio’s amnesty for illegals bill to pass. 20 million more votes for Democrats? Why would THAT be a problem?

    I’m much more worried about 20 million illegals being transferred to my country than I am GTMO terrorists.
