Say It Ain’t So…GITMO!!!
By Dante Vitoria August 18, 2016
Since it’s opening in January 2002, Guantanamo Bay has housed as many as 779 people…
NO, NOT PEOPLE. Not human beings. Not criminals.
It held and HOLDS terrorists.
T E R R O R I S T S
Someone who willingly commits acts of terror, and more importantly, against the United States of America.
Yet, YOUR President, just transferred 15 MORE of these misguided souls. Bless his heart. Thank you President O.
Maybe Trump wasn’t joking with his “ISIS” comments after all.
Congress and the Pentagon have advised STRONGLY against these transfers…all 200 under “your” President’s reign.
Now, I know these “folks” are monitored and NEVER return to their old ways.
Do you know why I know for a FACT they are monitored? Because, our Government, or should I say OUR TAX DOLLARS go towards it, as well as vocational classes (hopefully not chemistry), language lessons, etc. To the tune of $100,000.00 USD per transferee per YEAR.
Just MORE PROOF of President O’s economic prowess!!!
Now, here comes the “okey dokey” from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
The U.S. Director of National Intelligence gave us these numbers to support the President (of course they did, after all EVERYONE knows you are NOT ALLOWED to criticize Obama!!!).
So, the Office of the DIN gave these numbers:
111 of the 532 detainees released under the Bush Administration returned or re-engaged to hostile activities, close to 21%.
7 of the 144 detainees released under the current administration returned or re-engaged to hostile activities, close to 5%.
And and even higher percentage “suspected” of returning to their terror ways.
COME ON Vitoria, even YOU can’t debate that!!!
NO, well, as I remember (FONDLY ) under the Bush administration (his father’s and Mr. Reagan’s too), our Government and our country was a FORCE to be reckoned with. We were feared, we were strong, we defended ourselves. We actually looked for terrorists, found them and eliminated them.
Remember our “friend ” Saddam Hussein? Born 4/28/37 died 12/30/06.
Care to tell me who OUR President was that day?
Big HINT….he is the CAUSE OF EVERY PROBLEM Obama has!
Yes, George W. Bush…
The President that oversaw the capture, trial and execution of a TERRORIST…what a BAD GUY “W” is!
I wish he was in office for the last 7+ years.
The Obama administration gives this reason for the discrepancy…READY?…it is in part to our new procedures we have established and implemented to screen detainees BEFORE they are “transferred”.
WOW! Here is all the screening needed:
THEY ARE TERRORISTS!!!
Lee Wolosky, the State Department’s special envoy to GITMO said:
“The U.S. is grateful to the United Arab Emirates for accepting the latest group of 15 men and helping pave the way for the detention center’s closure”.
Federal Law prohibits transfer of detainees to the U.S. regardless of the reason (let’s hope it stays that way).
Because no matter how many millions keeping GITMO open may cost…it’s worth EVERY penny!
So, sleep well Mr. Obama…
The rest of us (at least US with common sense and American PRIDE) won’t!
Maybe my last question should be:
“Got Trump” ???
