Obama presents plan to close Guantanamo, move detainees to US

by
February 23, 2016

President Obama detailed Tuesday a four-point plan he’ll submit to Congress to eventually close the detention facility at Guantanamo, Cuba — a plan that includes releasing more of the remaining 91 detainees, while transferring others to an as-yet determined facility on U.S. soil.

Much of the president’s plan, which represents a final effort to fulfill his 2008 campaign pledge to close the detention center, still must be approved by Congress, and includes:

— The “careful” transfer of 35 detainees to overseas countries;

— Accelerating the review process for the roughly 56 remaining detainees to see whether they’re eligible for transfer;

— Using “all of the legal tools” available to resolve the cases of detainees in the commission process; and,

— Work with Congress to select a secure transfer location on U.S. soil.

    Apparently his Latest NO plan PLAN is just like his Economic Plan which was Never an Economic Plan any more than his Defeating AQ was a Working Plan like his Victory plan over iSIS…iOW ZERO…. NO hITS…NO Runs and TOO many ERRORS

    Obama has done more to destroy America than all the OTHER terrorist combined

  • Carol Ann Rohr

    We don’t want those terredt here on our soil shut Obama down once and for all he plants Muslims and terrists all over our country and in our government positions he wants to destroy us anyway he can

    I figured out what Soetoro was up to years ago. He wants to get these enemy combatants/terrorists on U.S. soil because:
    Once here, they could not be put into prisons because they have never been “convicted” of crimes.
    He would force them to be tried in criminal courts.
    On the very first day of their trials, his DOJ would say, I’m sorry your honor, but we cannot prosecute these people because they were never “mirandized” and any and all evidence against them is therefore inadmissible.
    They will then be given refugee status, social security benefits and most importantly, VOTER REGISTRATION CARDS!
    Just more of his “stealth jihad” Hijra, to destroy America.

  • TOM

    King Barack making another move against the wishes of his kingdom. Just like leaving the void when we left Iraq, dealing with Iran and handing them a nuclear bomb, allowing IsIs take over countries, and now bringing Terriorist to American Soil. He is either the dumbest Mother F’er that has ever lived or he just don’t give a shit about the people of his Kingdom, all you peasants, and surfs. Watch out all of you Dem’s or servants, you are trying to put the Princess in the Castle next. They are so the same, if Hillary was black, the could be brother and sister.

    the only thing this jerk should close is his mouth. Too bad the rep don’t have gumption enough to stop him.

  • clem

    The detainees are prisoners of war; the war ain’t over. Keep them locked up in gitmo until the war is over. To win in war you blowup things and kill people. The islamic radicals have that down , they are doing just that. We need to quit worrying about collateral and harming the environment and let our military do their jobs without ass nine rules of engagement. “it is time to feed the hogs.”

  • stoth

    Has anyone every looked at the relationships between Obama and all the gitmo detainees, even before he was a senator or a youth growing up it the atmosphere he grew up in? could be quite interesting..
    We are about to find out what Ryan’s and McConnell’s politics really are.

  • TexRancher

    Both acts are in violation of the law passed last Sept. by Congress AND SIGNED INTO LAW BY OBAMA HIMSELF!

  • peeweetanner@yahoo.com

    They should impeach him but there is no one in Congress have brains to do it

  • Webb

    Obama, you will soon be out of a Job, like the rest of us!
    Gitmo would make a great transition for you…from President To Prisoner…

    Well, sure! Why not? We already have a terrorist in the White House and terrorists are already living throughout our Country. Why not invite a few more to occupy our jails. You say, “There’s no terrorist in the White House.” Really? If Obama’s fundamental transformation of America is not terrorism, I don’t know what is.

    I have always had serious thoughts about this issue ever since the king mentions it was his intention to close this Guantanamo Hotel from day one. First we should I guess remember that the United States does provide these terrorists today with not only healthcare benefits, but also religious supplies, lawyers, protection, individual rights and food all suitable to there faith. Including even air conditioning, top recreational and educational items, all again suitable tor there faith.
    People these terrorists are being treated much more humanely then any of our own convicts, or prisoners in the United States. We all know that ISIS and terrorists do not provide our Soldiers, Christians, Jews or anyone that opposes there beliefs and values with the same treatment. Closing the base could force them to go home, or probably to another anti-American allie country with no such entitlements, benefits, and of course with no individual rights, so from this perspective, Hell yes closes the Guantanamo Hotel.
    But sadly I would not be surprise if the United States provides these released terrorists with great Social Security benefits, or even lost wages and benefits to take with them…etc.
    However, when in many cases, these terrorists returns to there profession, of terrorizing citizens and Americans, it is a done deal, they will be eliminated and not taken as tourists by our soldiers. Period. 1776
    God Bless the United States, and the Nation of Israel, our only true friend and allie in the Middle East.

  • Grim Reaper

    I am all for closing Gitmo and hanging everyone of the Muslim S.O.B’s that took up arms against us. We need all the prison space we can spare for Obama and Clinton when the new administration comes to power.

    • AKLady2015

      Except not everyone in Gitmo is Muslim. Not all are Arabs.

      There are American, British, French, Danish, Spanish, Russian, and Swedish citizens being held there.

      Yes, American citizens who have been denied their Constitutional rights.

      • Grim Reaper

        Anyone out of uniform who takes up arms against America is not covered under the Geneva Convention, and is therefore subject to the death penalty.

  • Niko

    We need to keep Gitmo open so we can put that filthy, ignorant, piece of shit obumbo in there for life!!!!!!

    • AKLady2015

      Why do you embarrass America this way?

      • Niko

        Is there something wrong with you. Honestly do you want the people in gitmo to be brought to America. You are an embarrassment to yourself and to this once great country. Stop thinking with your emotions. Personally all the muslime there should be killed. The people in gitmo are there for taking up arms against America.

      • Niko

        I see your problem you think they are criminals. The Constitution is only made for American citizens “hello are you in there Mcfly” American citizens not filthy piece of shot foreigners or scumbag filth fighting against this country

  • Susan young

    President Obama why don’t you put all of those prisoners into Washington DC prison !! not in Arizona not New Mexico Obama you want to release them then you could keep them in your state Washington DC or keep them in Chicago prisons not Colorado

  • Cookie Vranish

    I suppose Minnesota will get these killers. We have an extremely bad Governor and thinks he is saving the world. Someone is going to get beheaded here.

  • mr2bears@hotmail.com

    Personally I think we need to keep it open for the current prisoners and the future ones we’ll have when we get a real potus willing to deal with Isis. Not to mention the fact of housing Obozo when he’s finally brought up on his treasonous acts against our country !

    • Cookie Vranish

      I wonder if Trump can reopen it after he takes over. Unless of course Obama gifts the land to Cuba. If you can remember, Jimmy Carter gave the Panama Canal to China. These liberal fools do stuff like that!

      • mr2bears@hotmail.com

        Congress would have to approve that and I doubt you would see that happen I don’t think that they’ll close it anyway

        • AKLady2015

          Why do we need a prison on a military bsse in Cuba?

          • mr2bears@hotmail.com

            So we don’t have to bring military combatants and terrorists onto US soil

      • Zegota

        Is it no wonder today that Mr. Trump is so highly supported, today the anger and frustrations of honest sincere hard working American citizens are being heard, for once. Mr. Trump is only reflecting this emotion, and the Republican Party better wake-up or they will blow this election and our country good-by.

        • AKLady2015

          Trump worships the God Profit with Greed.

          He is in the race for one thing, and only one thing — the ultimate ego trip.

      • AKLady2015

        Gitmo is a U.S. Military Base.

        The detainees were held there so Bush could violate both the Geneva Convention and the U.S. Constitution.

        Releasing prisoners will not function to close the huge U.S. Navy Base.

        Obama did not campaign on closing the base. His intention was only to closw the prison.

    • Ace Dragon

      HE WANTS TO BRING HIS JIHAD BUDDY’S TO HAVE DINNER WITH HIM AND TALK ABOUT TAKING OVER THIS COUNTRY.

          I DO NOT TRUST THIS PRESIDENT, HE IS ALSO A JIHADIST IN DISGUISE.

          • Pam

            Not Jihadist. He’s WAY TOO much of a narcissist to die for ANYONE. He fancies himself more of a “Head Mullah”, issuing the “fatwahs” to kill the infidel, white Americans.

      Gitmo — How Baby Bush violated the U.S. Constitution.
      Gitmo — How Baby Bush violates the Geneva Convention.

      Either the detainees are POWs or they are criminals.

      POWs should have been repatrioated at the end of the Iraq Qar.
      The Constitution guarantees a trial for criminals.

      • mr2bears@hotmail.com

        they are terrorists

        @AKLady2015: The worst thing to find when you try to view other peoples’ opinions online is someone that simply follow what the news put out. Lady, get educated and maybe, maybe then your comments would make sense.

  • used_to_be_a_liberal

    Lets see, Obama visits Cuba, has a nice talk with the younger Castro. Have I got a deal for you, Obama tells the younger Castro. Listen he says. I want to close Club Gitmo, but those guys in D C might not let me. So I will run it by them, and if they say no, then you come to my rescue, then say you want Club Gitmo gone, then they will have no choice, and I will make sure you get paid off in a big way, one way or another. Deal, good, and thanks in advance.

    • Cookie Vranish

      I don’t like your post! It is too probable for me. But very accurate!

      • used_to_be_a_liberal

        Well, I liked your first sentence reply. A bit of humour never hurt anyone.

      ..Why do you embarrass America this way?

      • used_to_be_a_liberal

        Who me?? or Obama? if me, please explain how I embarrassed America.

  • I Seigel

    There are 91 detainees left in Gitmo. There are 2000 troops and civilians stationed there to staff the prison and court. The numbers work out to $4.4 million spent per year for each of those detainees.

    Think of what Trey Gowdy or Darrell Issa could do with all that money. Almost unlimited funds to keep investigating Benghazi and other Hillary “crimes”.

    • mr2bears@hotmail.com

      Yeah and think of how many prisoners we’ll have when we get a real President whose willing to eradicate Isis from the face of the earth !

      • I Seigel

        Eradicate doesn’t mean taking prisoners.
        You expect a “real” president to just “eradicate” them? How, with bombs? Troops? How long will that take? How much blood and money will he spend? Off the books, of course, because we can’t raise taxes to pay for that sort of thing. No, we need to keep shopping.

        • mr2bears@hotmail.com

          My bad wishful thinking on my part and wrong term. However if and I feel a real potus that wants to get rid of Isis can build another coalition of countries to decimate and fund such an operation.

          • I Seigel

            And you don’t think that’s going on now? Air Force missiles fired in Libya just in the past week to attack ISIS there? Cease fire efforts being made in Syria so as to allow concentrating on ISIS? How many American troops have died in the effort yet?

          • mr2bears@hotmail.com

            I don’t know, but it sounds to me like your “wired” into obozos game plan so why don’t you tell us? I’d be interested in where you get your information?

          • I Seigel

            I get my information from newspapers and TV. My hotline to the WH was disconnected a few months ago. They haven’t consulted me on any of their plans since McConnell took over the Senate.
            Do I understand your question to mean that you haven’t heard of the attacks on ISIS in Libya? Or the truce under negotiation in Syria?

      • Cookie Vranish

        I think Trump won’t have a lot of prisoners at all. I believe he will let the military handle the job with no news media making up stories.

    • Niko

      Trey Gowdy is a turn coat, he has fallen into the ranks of the RNC anyone that supports that pole smoker Rubio is a filthy moron, thats righy Gowdy is for the pole smoker!!!!!

      Nawww! Thats peanuts why that wouldnt buy the ice cream cones Obama hands out to the illegals coming up from the south for a month.
      Whats money when you can spend someone elses.

    • AKLady2015

      Guantanamo Bay Naval Base.
      Naval Air Station Guantanamo Bay

      The prison is not the main fumction of that site.

      • I Seigel

        I didn’t say it was.
        I did say that there are 2000 troops stationed there that are assigned to the prison and court.

        Obama is proposing to close just the prison, not the other military facilities.

        Your point being…..?

    • Charles Reed

      Yep, and about $91 dollars we could call it even, which should had been done years ago.
