The Guantanamo prison should continue to house terrorists– as long as Cuba is controlled by Communists. After all, Communist Cuba has been a state sponsor of terrorism. Gitmo is simply one prison inside another.
Some brief remarks on today’s announcement about the Guantanamo prison.

Today Barack Obama offered a plan to close the Guantanamo prison, which is something he promised to do during his first campaign in 2008.
Obama claims that the prison in Guantanamo “does not help our national security”, but undermines it,”—and considers Gitmo “contrary to our values.” Obama also said that the Guantanamo prison serves as propaganda for terrorists to advance their cause.
He can’t be serious.
What is contrary to our values are the violent acts committed by the terrorists who we have fed and housed in Guantanamo. Transferring these terrorists to other locations is exactly what would put us at risk. As far as propaganda is concerned, terrorists will resort to anything in order to advance their cause. Closing Gitmo is not going to deter them from spreading their evil message.
I see the Castro brothers and the new “diplomacy” with Cuba written all over this.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Pentagon announced that the Obama administration intends to meet the deadline, which ends today, by presenting a pathway to closing through the transfer of the 91 terrorists currently imprisoned. This would involve moving some prisoners to third countries—and the remaining number would be brought to U.S. territory. Good luck with that. Congress prohibits the transfer of these thugs to U.S. territory, since there are prohibition in our funding bills that prevent the Obama administration from transferring detainees.
The Congressional Research Service explains this further:
“Several appropriations and authorization measures enacted by Congress have barred funds from being used to effectuate the release of Guantanamo detainees into the United States. Moreover, Congress has enacted several measures barring funds from being used to transfer detainees into the United States or its territories or possessions.”
“The closure of the Guantanamo detention facility would raise a number of legal issues with respect to the individuals formerly interned there, particularly if those detainees are transferred to the United States. The nature and scope of constitutional protections owed to detainees within the United States may be different from the protections owed to aliens held abroad. The transfer of detainees to the United States may also have immigration consequences.”
This wanderlust on the part of Obama to have these dangerous criminals traveling as transferees to other parts of the world is reckless delusion— since movement of these prisoners to other countries or to the United States is considered a threat to our national security.
In the scheme of “all things Obama”– it appears that this desire to close the Guantanamo prison is also a goodwill overture towards the Castro brothers—prior to his upcoming visit to Cuba, the Communist island prison.
Communism and terrorism go hand in hand. KEEP GITMO.
It’s time to lift the fog… someone has to say the truth.
