Obama Lays Out Plan to Close Gitmo

The United States Congress has twice made it clear that the president is not to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, but that’s not important to a president who considers Congress somehow beneath him. To wit, Obama announced Tuesday that he was sending a comprehensive plan to close the facility to lawmakers.

“It’s been clear that the detention center at Guantanamo Bay does not advance our national security,” Obama said. “It undermines it.”

Obama has been promising to close the prison since his original campaign in 2008, but he has faced strong opposition from Republicans. On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that opposition remained steadfast. “President Obama seems to be captured on one matter by one campaign promise he made in 2008,” said McConnell. “This isn’t even a case where the president can use some kind of pen and phone strategy by claiming the Congress refused to act.”

Obama’s plan involves moving somewhere between 30 and 60 detainees from Cuba to the U.S., and it lays out possible locations in Kansas, Colorado, and South Carolina. The rest of the detainees would be sent to whichever countries are willing to take them.

“Keeping this facility open is contrary to our values,” Obama said. “It undermines our standing in the world. It is viewed as a stain on our broader record of upholding the highest standards of rule of law.”

Obama has not ruled out using an executive order to close the facility in lieu of congressional support.

It’s disgusting to watch Obama talk about our “values” in this context. How about the value of keeping America safe? That’s a pretty good one, isn’t it? Maybe Obama could concentrate more on that…you know, his sworn duty…and less on liberal moralizing. Especially when that moralizing centers around some of the most despicable human beings ever to walk the planet. Terrorists. Murderers. Dangerous men who would just as soon kill an American as look at him.

Is Guantanamo an ideal situation? Not hardly, but the war on terror is not over. Not by a long shot. Islamic extremism has grown, spread, and flourished in the wake of Osama bin Laden’s death. But this president wants us to believe that we have nothing to worry about. Or he wants us to think that Gitmo is a recruiting tool for ISIS. If that’s true, though, wouldn’t that just transfer over to whichever facility we move the terrorists to?

The competent, brave Naval troops guarding Gitmo have done a fine job of it for many years. Instead of gambling with the lives of innocent Americans, how about we let them keep doing that job?

  1. muslim traitor has gone illegal executive action crazy,
    next he will issue an illegal executive action to replace Scalia with himself,
    after killing him, when is someone going to get rid of this American hating lawless uppity muslim terrorist traitor?

  2. Scalia died of natural causes; Obama is not a traitor. As for Gitmo, Republicans are just plain cowards on the issue. There are a good number of communities whose main industry is a prison and who find no problem with bringing the detainees there. We already have Muslim terrorists in federal prisons, so why not those at Gitmo? How about Leavenworth, for example?

    • Seek help.

    • Ever consider his “executive actions” in this light: It isn’t how many he has done so much as what they were done for.

    • Obama hides his executive actions with calling them Memorandum which total as high as his orders. so double your number. Obama is a pathological liar, everything about him id lies and deceit. He claims the the republicans are terrorist with bomb strapped to their chest. This in insanity, bring out the straight jacket.

    • take your head out of the sand buddy

    • Considering the executive actions Obama has taken that cause sane people to pay attention knowing that they are not in America’s best interest, then yes, those will be contested and brought into light. The mundane executive actions he takes are of little consequence. Obama has gone around Congress to push his agenda, then pulls the race card or blames it on republican obstructionism. No, it is the way the constitution was written to keep a dictator in check. He has pushed America’s safety to the brink and the ramifications may not be evident for a few years, but we will rue the day he was put in office. If you can’t see the danger, no one will convince you of it. But if you open your eyes you will see how far down we’ve come in the last 7 years. The world is not a safer place with N. Korea, China, ISIS, and Iran threatening us on a weekly basis. Obama has cut our military so there will be less protection when we need it. No one takes us seriously anymore. And we’ll be like the nerds on the playground surrounded by bullies, except they have nuclear weapons to destroy us instead of calling us names or giving us a black eye. We are even further in debt under his administration despite his bad mouthing Bush about his budgets. Do you realize that your/my property has been put up as collateral for our national debt? Yep. If they call the loans, we the people lose. They are bringing in so many different nationalities with conflicting cultures that we will not recognize America anymore. They teach our youth that America is the enemy so there is no longer American pride. They’ve dumbed down the generations coming behind us so they will be easier to control. A lot of them are so fragile, they need safe spaces to deal with their feelings. WTF? I could go on and on. But until people wake up and take back our country, we are on the way out as a nation.

      • Thankfully, you blokes are already outnumbered. And it started years ago, while you were fighting and losing the Vietnam War. and you weren’t even aware that you had been SET UP! Sweet Je-us, you were taken for a royal ride!

    • And you just arrived from which planet ??

    • Yes yes and if BS was music you would be a brass band.

      • LOLOL… being a musician, I appreciate that remark. LOLOL… thank you! THIS was worth reading all these angry, inane comments thus far. You’ve made my day more enjoyable and now I can have some hot chocolate and go to bed. (Did you ever think to re-up?).

    • Any president that gives arms and funds to the enemy is guilty of treason. Any president that knowingly breaks the law to advance his agenda is a traitor. Any president that imposes his will via EO’s is a traitor. Any president that overreaches his authority is a dictator. Any president that considers it is his right to pick and choose what laws he will enforce or dismiss is a dictator.
      And, when you look at it, it is not the amount of executive orders that any president signs, it is the quality of those orders. You mention Lincoln as an example, but he also was the only president to suspend habeas corpus.
      You ask why not those at Gitmo; for one thing, these are not civilian criminals. These are prisoners of war. They should be tried and sentenced by a Military Tribunal, not a civilian court. And why would they even want to exchange their accommodations at Gitmo for a smaller cell, less freedom of movement, and all attempts to meet their religious requirements? Realistically, they should not be put in general population since a majority of muslim conversions occur in our prison systems.

    • your in a bigger than life dream—god help if your bubble was to bust

    • The ones in GITMO are the worst of the worst. They would bring them here and it would cost taxpayers millions in lawyer fees. Enemy combatants do not belong in US prisons.
      It’s not the amount of executive actions, it’s the scope. Don’t mention Lincoln and Obama in the same sentence.

    • Really? How did the director of Hawaii’s Department of Health Loretta Fuddy die?..She was killed in a plane crash. The eight other passengers onboard survived. At least she didn’t shoot herself in the head TWICE!

    • Yes Scalia was grossly overweight and a smoker so he may have died of natural causes. But we will never know for sure. Seems like Obama gets more than his fair share of these “lucky breaks” such as the stock market crash that put him ahead in the 2008 election.

      I’m for moving the prisoners to Colorado Max and moving those prisoners to Gitmo. I am sure that those prisoners would welcome the change.

      William T Sherman was a war criminal. And since Lincoln was the commander in chief at the time, that makes him a war criminal too.

  3. Obama has already stated that his agenda would be fulfilled by Executive Action, so why even make this an issue? He stated in his SOTUS that he failed in uniting the parties and this type of hyperbole solidifies his attitudes towards Republicans and the American People at large!

  4. Put his sorry islamist ass in gitmo, he can be their “boy toy practice” dummy.

  5. Obama is scared he will end up in GITMO after he leaves office for his crimes against America, THIS is why he wants to close it.

    • Virginia Hornibrook

      He wasn’t to close it so when he leaves the white house he can make Gitmo his own palace because he thinks he’s king. King of hell and ruined the united States of America I want him to have to be on Obama care when he leaves the white house

  7. Obama cannot do it. He does not have the authority to do so. Even his hand picked lacky AG Lynch has told him he cannot do it.

    • America can rise up and take our country back

      • really –if it was going to it already would have—as a whole most seem to care less

      • Yes, Americans can rise up and take back our country, but they lack the will and bravery to do so.

        • We can and will it be our older citizens and mil vets all are in waiting

          • And getting tired of waiting !! You are talking to the sons and daughters of the “Greatest Generation’ !! And we are still standing by !!

          • If you do not understand military strategy listen, never run into a battle with out a plan of victory. You may be in a great hurry,but a plan is what must be in place. If you don’t think so enlist your neighbors and friends and start by your selves but you will not win.

          • Yeah, lolol… with your canes, walkers, and scooters at the ready! You jokers are just too much, lolol.

          • We may be in walkers, wheelchairs and scooters, but you can bet the farm we can still shoot and we remember combat tactics too.

          • Another war lost… ties don’t count!

      • Virginia Hornibrook

        Yes we can but we can’t let killer Hillary back in the white house as she still hasn’t returned the furniture that she stole when they left the white house if we let her in the white house again she’s steal a whole lot more furniture and if she doesn’t like u or against her she’s have u killed just like she’s done since white water on Gitmo we can’t close it because Obama, killer Hillary,Michele obsma, Valerie jarred and rapist bill need to be there

      • Fergetit! You’re neither gutsy enough nor intelligent enough!

    • i have no idea where you have been for the last 7 years but this mad dog obama has been doing as he wants since day one—so what you doing about itr?–every one else is setting on their asses

    • Obama did not have the authority to release thousands of illegal criminals back onto our streets. Neither did he have the right to pick and choose what portions of his ACA would be enforced and which ones would be delayed. He did not have the authority to tell our Border Patrol agents to stand down or seek cover and allow illegals to enter the country.
      Obama operates under his own rules and assumes that his position as President is all the authority he needs to be a dictator.

    • Lynch said no such thing. Where do you dig up this garbage?!

  8. Obama is determined to destroy anything good for America. It will be determined that he wild be the first Muslim president of America. Our worthless Congress should have put him out of office long ago.

  9. SheRok, you explained the sad state of America to the tee! Nicely put. One huge point though, when America is destroyed, the world will follow.

  10. Christopher C. Lanham III

    He should be set on fire, burned alive. There is no excuse for that, and everything he’s done to achieve democrat party agenda accomplishments to get even with America. Most democrats are born here, & want to argue how their ideas are aimed for the destruction of our country. We are in another taxation without representation scenario where we are faced with another America Revolution. I say track obama down & burn him alive, while he is alive, to death. Burn every democrat & make the republicans know we won’t tolerate any kind of political abuse. See how the run it with one party. Kill the democrats & their party, & party’s once and for all. Just have people show up with a complete background check. Where they are from, what they done, & funnel out their true intentions. So we won’t have to feud or kill anymore politicians for a while.

    • Gun running,backing muslims and trearing America down, aided by none other than the bitoh Clinton.

    • Virginia Hornibrook

      Because he didn’t want his Muslim friends put In jail has anyone been caught and put in jail hell no he won’t let it happen. Somebody asked which of his family members where on welfare his mother and his brother

    • To get rid of witnesses to his and hillary’s gun running to the terrorists?

  11. Ovomit is nothing more than a Muslim dictator choking America into submission. It’s time this SOB is impeached,hung for treason or just done away with.

  12. Certainly the fact that having such criminals on US soil is just the illegal stunt Obama would pull.

  13. obama loves Islam and his murdering Muslim brotherhood, and he is beholding to them and does what ever he can to protect these murdering terrorist. Just look at the sweet deal obama and john kerry gave Iran, they stabbed America in their backs.

    And we just can’t figure out who’s causing the problem!!!

  14. run Ogayarab up on impeachment charges, than convict him of treason sedition, and terrorist activities and put in Gitmo . move his mooching wife, her battle axe mother, and two little leeches in for life since they like tropical island vacation at the taxpayers expense

  15. I agree with both Brenda and Sgt York , just be vigalent because hell is coming, you can bet on that, Obama just hasn’t pushed the right button yet, but he will !!!!!!!

  16. Maybe we should move them to Colorado Max and move the prisoners there to Gitmo. I wonder if his plans include returning Gitmo to Cuba?


  18. The rinos don’t want Carson. He like Trump is uncontrollable. Everybody with big money is buying a piece of Rubio. The original rino rat plan was to use Cruz to take out Trump then we will get rid of Cruz for Jeb. It should have been obvious that Carson was marked for political death when he was sent out on the last debate to stand in the wings. His name was next to be called and it wasn’t but the camera stayed on him as each name was called but not his. He was made to look lost and stupid. Until Trump came out and he said to Carson why aren’t you on the stage? Carson said they haven’t called my name. Trump said you go ahead of me. That is why I like a Trump-Carson team. The slogan should be REUNITING THE UNITED STATES..





  19. gitmo needs to stay open to house obama and the democrat leadership in congress for treason

  20. Instead of closing it why not send him?

  21. The only stain on America’s record is the one sitting in The Zero’s office right now.

  22. when did you pick up any values? You wouldn’t know a value if one bit your scrawny tush

  23. O’Bama should be tarred and feathered and run out of Washington on a rail like other traitors were treated to.

  24. First of all if there is an excutive order on this it will surely end up at scouts and Obama will be long out of office and the next president will right the wrong

  25. Gitmo should never close! We don’t need ISIS members in US Prisons so they havce US rights!
    They need to be in GITMO with no rights!

  26. ““It’s been clear that the detention center at Guantanamo Bay does not
    advance our national security,” Obama said. “It undermines it.”……..This fraud RULES what was once the most powerful country on earth? Is that why he traded a deserting liberal for 5 known terrorists? How much innocent muslim, Christian, American soldier’s blood have they spilled since then?

  27. Christopher C. Lanham III

    Let me guess, executive action? Everything he has done will be removed effective as soon as people with some sense get back in the white house. It is not the black house. & it is not time to get even with America. I will see obama’s get his in my lifetime, if it takes me 20 years or more, I will get him & get Ted Kennedy removed from Arlington Cemetery. & place them all where people can pay respects to their bones in a corner where they can proudly pee on all of them. If it takes me 50 years i will achieve at least an obama arrest, conviction & brutal death.

    • LOLOL… just sober up and you’ll be just fine in the morning, chump!

      • Christopher C. Lanham III

        Sure bud. In a living nightmare. Hey, is my nightmare over? Nope, a taunting prick that hates America is in our white house. You should be shot in ur mouth with a firearm. & so should obama. Actually, I would like to encourage everybody & myself to go rip him up out of that shit now, before he is out of the white house. He is purely offensive. You know the Confederate Flag? yea, it’s not offensive. But keep pointing away from yourself & other libtards pretending to good for America. The democrat party plan is to kill us & our country. What do you get out of it?

  28. i say,send them to the white house

  29. Time to put this pos where he belongs. Gitmo or better yet the hot seat.

  30. By the time you loco yokels quit steaming over this issue, the Gitmo prisoners will have already been moved and resettled. Cases closed. You lose! End of story.

  31. Those residing at Gitmo are “illegal combatants.” Meaning they’re not a legitimate army fighting under color of an internationally recognized nation. They’re terrorists, not criminals subject to our criminal codes to be adjudicated in American courts. Bush 43 said way back in 2001 that we were in a war with radical Islamic terrorists that would last a generation – meaning we’re only halfway through. So we need to prosecute the war in a manner that’s conducive to “winning” (a word that causes liberals to wet their panties). That means we expand Gitmo to accept more illegal combatants as we pursue a winning strategy. If we have to add another wing, we do it. We don’t whine about it. And we hold them until such time as the war is won. Which is to say, the enemy no longer has the wherewithal, financially, militarily or otherwise, to inflict mass death upon innocent people worldwide. That’s what a strong nation does.

  32. Christopher C. Lanham III

    Can this guy –> George M Melby <– tell any of us 1 thing obama has done for us in 7 years as anti-president? He bows to cowards, weirdos & dictators. Surprised he did not go bow down to omar kadafi before having him killed by the same people him and halaryass, had in the least allow to kill an U.S. ambassador. It is why he is so smug & making sick whack ass jokes about Scalia death, after he caused the man to be assassinated. Why Scalia would go hang out with democrats we may not ever know, but they are surely our American enemies. They came to destroy our country. Ask them, "What do you get out of America's demise?" What do you get out of it? I am 38 & will not ever rest until they all are at least locked away forever, in a dungeons. I want them executed.

  33. That idiot O’Bummer is asking for more trouble than he ever imagined possible. This is what we get from a student of Jeremiah Wright. More division, less unity. Shame, Shame, Shame.

  34. How can a military base and prison undermine our national security on a communist dictatorship island who wants to launch missiles at us.
    How would this Indonesian lying, homosexual Muslim have a clue what our values are. American values that made this Nation great are not lying, cheating, stealing, treason and murder. Our values are not Letting scrum walk after breaking laws. Our values are not letting laws go unenforced, letting parts of laws be enforce while not enforcing other parts or not making laws up to suit your will. It is not undermining and shredding of the Constitution which one supposedly swore an oath to defend support and protect. Muslims do not know and obey American values. Our values are not abortion, homosexuality, and queer marriage. That might be who It is but not who we are.
    No one sent to Gitmo should live. They should be interrogated and put to death. They didn’t get there by being choir boys and girls. People there have lost their rights as humans.

  35. Follow the law Obama or go to Prison , either now or after your Presidency ! I don’t care when , we can lock his ass up at Gitmo with his Terrorist buddies !

  37. What obumass is really afraid of is that when his term ends (if it ever does), that he may wind up at Gitmo.
    Actually he might feel pretty much at home since Cuba’s climate is much like Hawaii or maybe Kenya ??

  38. Dream on PUNK!

  39. Obama’s philosophy when it comes to our country’s laws:

    “Ignore ’em, bend ’em, or break ’em. Whatever it takes to get what I want.”

  40. Obama is a Muslim. There’s no doubt. If he were a native-born American citizen, he would be a traitor, but he is not a citizen so he is a Muslim terrorist and Marxist enemy.

  41. This is an interesting subject. In your article you state “some of the most despicable human beings ever to walk the planet”!

    Since these people have not been tried it is extremely difficult for me to know how you know that they are as despicable as you say. There is nothing that says they cannot be In the same conditions in a US prison as they are in Guantanamo. Since we’re constantly worried about the amount of money that is being spent keeping Guantanamo open to keep the small number of prisoners they were talking about is financially irresponsible.

    We have in this country mass murderers rapists felons of all kinds and we managed to keep them securely locked away until such time as we choose to release them. Since we brought German prisoners to this nation during World War II and allow them to live in Western states working on the land there doesn’t seem to be any reason why we could not bring other prisoners to this nation. The real problem with this is each state has a right to deny the President of the United States the right to bring prisoners to their state.

    Therefore; some federal land should be set aside which can be secured and guaranteed that no escape would be possible where human conditions could prevail yet prevented prisoners from ever participating in any of the social or other activities of the United States. The war on terror at some given time needs to be redefined and at that time the status of all prisoners should be established. If it is proven that the prisoner has actually acted against the United States than they should be continue to remain prisoners if the only reason that they are prisoners is because they were picked up in suspicious circumstances and there is no reason to believe that they ever really did anything against the United States then they should be return or sent to some other nation where they can be freed. The problem of course is which nation will receive them?

    Eventually the United States is going to have to release their rights to the portion of Cuba which the Cuban government does not recognize as legitimate.

    Whether the Congress that is currently in session or some Congress in the future complies with the Geneva Convention it will be done. Once again Pres. Obama only has months left in office and the Republican Party will have to make up their mind whether they’re going to continue to block the administration either Democrat or Republican of performing the duties required.

    This article is written with a one-sided view and does not offer any alternative to handling the prisoners at Guantanamo it just complains about president not complying with the desires of Congress. It is highly unlikely that the president will use any funds available to him to move any prisoners from Guantanamo. Therefore he is requesting approval from Congress so that they can authorize the expenditure of funds and if they fail to authorize expenditure of funds they will be responsible for the long-term debts that are accruing while we maintain Guantanamo.


    The precedent set by bringing the German soldiers to this nation who were not citizens and removing them from this nation with no legal ramifications is proof that no prisoner can ever claim a right to remain in this nation when he is brought here as a prisoner of war. Any such claim is a red herring and is based on the fact that the prisoners are Arabic or nonwhite.

    ISIS is not the same group of people that were involved with 9/11 or any of the terror activities concerning the United States and their only existence is to modify the religious values of individuals. This is a religious war and is not related to a war on terror. Therefore it is highly unlikely that we really have a legal right to say that we are still at war!
