Say it isn’t so.
I wish I could say I’m surprised. I do. I am wondering who it is in Washington D.C., in the Obama Admin, who might actually care about the Terror Attacks on 9/11 or the War on Terror. Oh, that’s right, it was merely a “man-made disaster.” Well rest assured Mr. President, I do not want a “non-threatening” terrorist anywhere in these United States.
I bet even Osama didn’t imagine in his wildest dreams that we’d invite the Gitmo Gang to live on our shores. If he only knew!
Don’t even try and tell me that this isn’t Obama’s idea, as if this wasn’t some sort of “trial balloon” to see how the public will react…
From the Weekly Standard Blog:
- Here, from the Associated Press, is a partial account of DNI Dennis Blair’s first press conference today (emphasis mine):
During his news conference, Blair also said the Obama administration is still wrestling with what to do with the remaining 240 detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, which the president has ordered closed.
Some of the detainees, deemed non-threatening, may be released into the United States as free men, Blair confirmed.
That would happen when they can’t be returned to their home countries, because the governments either won’t take them or the U.S. fears they will be abused or tortured. That is the case with 17 Uighurs (WEE’-gurz), Chinese Muslim separatists who were cleared for release from the jail long ago. The U.S. can’t find a country willing to take them, and it will not turn them over to China.
Blair said the former prisoners would have [to] get some sort of assistance to start their new lives in the United States.
“We can’t put them out on the street,” he said.
