Wacky Wednesday: Gitmo Closes (Not the Prison Camp, the Office in Charge of Closing the Prison Camp)
Former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Daniel Fried had a tough job: convincing other nations to take in Gitmo inmates. Seems that his job was so tough he was re-assigned and, as such, the Gitmo Gitmo office was closed.
But the prison camp in Cuba is still open.
Remember when then candidate Obama promised he’s close the camp? Remember the first day he took office, to much applause, he signed orders to close it?
Well, it’s still open.
Republicans wanted the camp to stay open.
We don’t want terrorists brought to the U.S where they will gain new rights and could tie up the courts system for years and force confidential information to be turned over to their lawyers or release them.
But the closing of the Gitmo office is yet another example of absurd, idealist Liberal policies and the lack of serious protests by Obama’s supporters have illustrated, once again, how unfair and unbalanced Obama voters are.
We had protests, marches, headlines, and talking points about how Gitmo was a stain upon America.
We heard lots of talk about how America’s “moral authority” in the world had been eroded because of Gitmo.
And the fact that Obama expended so much time and political capital pledging to close the camp only to simply drop it shows the fickleness and cynicism of his campaign and of the man himself.
He tarnished this nation’s good name to score political points and then, despite claiming to moral high ground, dropped the issue and moved on to the next big thing… blaming Rush Limbaugh or the NRA.
