America Less Safe

Bill to include money for relocating Gitmo inmates
A war funding bill headed to the floor next week would provide the $50 million sought by the Pentagon to relocate prisoners from the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the top Democrat in the Senate said Monday.

The administration would be denied the money until it came up with a detailed plan on how to close the Guantanamo detention facility and how to deal with the 240 or so detainees being held there, said Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Reid said Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, has told him that the measure would not allow money to be spent to bring accused terrorists to the U.S. before the end of the budget year on Oct. 1.
Wait a minute. Haven't just about every single 'representative' in Washington, D.C. said "not in my back yard"? In case they haven't figure it out up there in the swamp, this whole country is their 'back yard'! We have an administration that talked real big to get elected, but has no clue how to implement all his hopey/changey nonsense, and would put American citizens at risk.
"Closing this facility by an arbitrary deadline without any alternative is irresponsible and dangerous," said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. "It is unacceptable to the American people and it is unacceptable to an increasing number of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle."
When it comes right down to it, everything this Cheat in Chief has done, and is wanting to do, is a detriment to this country. Allowing dangerous terrorists within our shores is just one more indication we have a fool in the White House, and all those who blindly follow along are even bigger fools.
