How do you feel about Obama emptying Guantanamo bay?


Recommended Posts

Makes good sense.

It is expensive to keep prisoners or anyone else there.

Trump can do what he wishes, if he can get Congress to go along, but after Jan 20, Trump will be the one that gets bit in the ass.

 

Recidivism of Gitmo prisoners has been extremely low.

Every one held prisoner there has every reason to hate the US.

The US offered bounties in any non-Afghanis that Afghan warlords turned in. Not all of the men sent to Guantanamo were terrorists, The US did not have enough interpreters to even understand what the captured non-Afghans spoke. The people that turned some of these unlucky saps in made up tales about them to convince the Americans that they has turned in a "high value" suspect.

 

It was not illegal under Afghan law for these people to be in Afghanistan, nor was it legal for the US to enforce Afghan law.

They hated the US before they were we taken in...

 

Why didn't Obama empty it in 2009?

Well as long as the recidivism is low.

DUH!

 

Congress refused to allocate funds to move the prisoners or to try them.

President Obama tried everything he could to get rid of the prisoners.

The Republicans and some Democrats refused to fund his plan.

 

Anyone who reads a newspaper should know this.

The Republican's and "some Democrats"...

 

C'mon X..

 

Tell the truth..

 

The final vote was 90-6 AGAINST Obama...

 

Some Democrats? Yeah right...

 

The Dems had control of the Senate in 2009 and they still voted 90-6 against Obama spreading terrorists all over the US

Just another foreign policy mistake. There are only hard core left. They will be back in the fight. We need to get out. Afghan gov. should be able to stand on it's own. We have been training their army for years. Generals and diplomats must tell Trump to withdraw. As soon as the Iraqis stamp out ISIS in Iraq we need to withdraw all but special forces if the Iraqis request them. In Syria we should back the Kurds as much as we can. NO TROOPS. The Kurds want a country. The Peshmerga is an Army trained by US Special forces. They have killed tens of thousands of Jihadi's. The YPG may be communist and they attack Turk border positions on a regular basis. The Kurds are real good at close in combat with ISIS fighters. Kurds are worth a shot.
