President Obama’s Executive Order to unilaterally close GITMO and his decision to ram a partisan “stimulus” bill through Congress during his first month in office was the beginning of the end of his presidency. After campaigning for two years on the notion that he would be a post-partisan, moderate consensus builder who would change how Washington operates, these two moves sent loud signals that the central tenets of Obama’s platform were all talk. As we all now know, Mr. Obama is a typical liberal politician who does whatever his special interest groups tell him to do. Today, his GITMO decision is coming back to haunt America. Note to Obama: You shouldn’t have let the far left dictate America’s foreign policy – it’ll make you a one-termer double quick.
Sadly, we woke up to this report in The Washington Times today:
“Nearly one in four terrorists released from the detention facility at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, resumed terrorist activities against the United States and the number is expected to rise, according to a report to Congress by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI). The report, made public Tuesday, stated that out of a total of 598 detainees released as of October, 150 were confirmed or suspected of ‘reengaging in terrorist or insurgent activities after transfer,’ the two-page unclassified summary said.”
