You Won't Believe What Obama Just Did!

Come hell or high water, Obama will close Guantanamo Bay.  It was announced that five more terrorists held at Guantanamo are going to be released to Kazakhstan.  This reduces the total inmates to 127.

In 2010, a Democrat controlled Senate passed a bill barring the president from spending any monies to transfer inmates to the U.S. or to close Guantanamo Bay.  But Obama still has his pen and phone so he continues to reduce the prisoners there by sending them to other countries.  This year alone, he has transferred almost 30 inmates out of the facility.  And this results in too many of them going back into terrorism.

As Jennifer Griffin of Fox News reported, "As many as 20 to 30 former Guantanamo Bay detainees -- some of whom were released within the last three years -- are suspected by intelligence and Defense officials of having joined forces with the Islamic State and other militant groups inside Syria."

The Obama administration hopes to have the total number of inmates down to below 100.  The goal of this program is to eventually put enough pressure on Republicans in Congress to allow Guantanamo inmates to be transferred into the U.S. and close Guantanamo.

The new Congress must find ways to stop this dangerous transfer of terrorists.
