    Obama's Gitmo blame game

    Slowly...but surely...everyone comes to realize the truth and reality here.....Gitmo is an absolute stroke of genius. It answers EVERY question Obama wants to spend millions to answer. It removes these Cats off the battlefields, it prevents any attempt at rescue, it allows for tribunals, we can jail them for life or exterminate if appropriate. It's perfect.

    Leave them there!

    Greg Craig, the top in-house lawyer for President Barack Obama, is getting the blame for botching the strategy to shut down Guantanamo Bay prison by January — so much so that he’s expected to leave the White House in short order.

    But sources familiar with the process believe Craig is being set-up as the fall guy and say the blame for missing the deadline extends well beyond him.

    Instead, it was a widespread breakdown on the political, legislative, policy and planning fronts that contributed to what is shaping up as one of Obama’s most high-profile setbacks, these people say.

    The White House misread the congressional mood – as it found out abruptly in May, when the Senate voted 90-6 against funds for closing the base after Republicans stoked fears about bringing prisoners to the U.S. The House also went on record last week opposing bringing Gitmo detainees here.

    The White House misread the public mood – as roughly half of Americans surveyed say they disagree with Obama’s approach. A strong element of NIMBY-ism permeates those results, as Americans say they don’t want the prisoners in their backyards.
    Its obviously the GOP's fault.

    Did anyone really think dear leader was going to start importing terrorists en mass to the US from Gitmo?




    Despite the rhetoric of the campaign perspective changes when they begin receiving presidential briefings and become somewhat informed.

    Obama is an amateurish dumbass who doesn't know WTF he's talking about. That's all this is.

    He must be glad he has so many people that can be tossed under the bus.

    I wonder if they have titles under Presidential Aid (Disposable) like razor blades.

    I thought he signed an executive order that it must be closed by January 2010? Closing GITMO isn't like the last person to leave at 5pm just turns the light off, locks the door, and no one comes back to work the next day.


    In my opinion Gitmo shouldn't be closed. Why close Gitmo just to open another facility to house the same type of prisoners? Because Gitmo isn't secret any more and a new facility will be?
