It’s not a secret that you don’t want to get sent to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. It is after all, one of the highest security prisons and the home of some dangerous individuals. In other words, the worst of the worst are shipped to this area.
There is also a reason that they are sent there. Guantanamo Bay, or Gitmo, is home to the absolute worst of the worst. So you would think that people that are sent here would never see the light of day again right? Nope, that isn’t the case in the slightest.
President Obama has made it his personal mission to try and remove as many people from the center as possible, transferring and releasing as many prisoners as he possibly could. Naturally this was met with sharp criticism from Republicans. Of course it was! How do you feel knowing that Obama released dangerous terrorists back into the world?
Perhaps the worst part about this is the fact that the American people had no idea about the terrorist’s history. That is going to change as Texas Senator Ted Cruz introduced a bill that would make information about the terrorist’s activities of detainees at Gitmo that have been transferred or released since Election Day declassified.
This comes after a report from the Obama administration that said they had struck a deal with Oman to transfer 10 more detainees from Gitmo. That resulting move brought the total number of detainees down to fewer than 50.
As stated before, Cruz and other Republicans have been extremely critical of Obama’s transfers, as well as his promise to close the facility before leaving office. They point to a statistic that 30 percent of detainees that have been released or transferred either are suspected of returning to terrorist acts, or actually do so.
Obama has also been sharply criticized for transferring those detainees with known links to terrorists. Several close associates of Osama bin Laden have actually been transferred from Gitmo. Why would you ever assume it’s a good idea to release people that are associated with one of the most famous terrorists on the planet?
You can be sure that if the public were able to see that Obama was doing this, they would have challenged him on it. That is exactly what this new bill is going to do. Cruz’s bill would allow the public to have access to the same information that the Defense Department and the White House have used to determine whether detainees can be released or transferred.
The bill will “require the declassification and release to the public of information on past terrorist activities of individuals detained at United States Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, who have been transferred or released since November 8, 2016.”
Cruz released a statement about the bill. He said, “Even though the American people rightly rejected President Obama’s dangerous plan to completely empty the Guantanamo detention facility, he is still irresponsibly working to release as many terrorists as possible before he leaves office.”
“President Obama’s push to empty GTMO is reckless, and the American people should be made aware of the past terrorist activities committed by the individuals detained there.” Cruz is absolutely right about that. It was filled with people that were suspected of terrorism and Obama decides that it isn’t a big deal. It’s all because of a stupid promise that he made.
Obama said during his 2008 presidential campaign that he was going to do what he could to shut down Guantanamo during his presidency. Despite the fact that he won’t achieve that goal before he leaves office tomorrow, he did reduce the number of detainees at the naval station by an insane amount.
According to The Journal, there were 245 detainees at Guantanamo when Obama took office. If we take that number, and have the final result of fewer than 50 detainees left in the detention center, then Obama has released at least 195 of the most dangerous people out there. We can see how many people are back to performing terrorist actions too. Basic math shows that nearly 60 of these released criminals have returned to terrorist activity. Way to go Obama.
As stated earlier, Obama has been releasing terrorists from Gitmo. Despite the fact that it’s literally one of the worst ideas that he could have done, Obama continued to do it. He literally said that one of the terrorist he released changed despite the fact that the military said that he shouldn’t release the prisoner.
Of course liberals are people that want to see tolerance for everyone. They were extremely critical of how terrorists were portrayed in a movie and literally complained about how they were portrayed. Leave it to liberals to complain about how a terrorist was portrayed. These are people that are committed to killing Americans and liberals are worried about how they are shown. It must hurt being that stupid.
Share this article to show that a new bill has been proposed that is going to allow the American public to see just who Obama released from Gitmo. Now we can actually see the damage that Obama has done to the country from the prisoners that he released.
