Like other prisoners recently released, is this because of sequester?
The same problems exist now as did in 2009 when the President said he would
close it down. The President says he doesn't want these guys to die.
Their own countries won't take them back. Is he going to put them in his
state of Illinois and help the local economy get jobs? Not in my neighborhood
is what those people said before. These guys were even making alternative
weapons while being under the strict guard of our personnel and cameras. These
guys have a different kind of brain than we want in our country and the ability
to have someone come into the area and help them escape for the "cause".
Let them get their Darwin Award in Guantanamo. They are doing this
because not even their own countries will take them back. These guys have also
learned the way our military and their personal attorneys run things with Red
Cross review periodically.I believe there was a movie filmed
partially in Wendover, Utah, "CONAIR" that displays what can happen when
we move these prisoners to our secure sites. It is not secure in-between, even
with security at both ends. Fast and Furious people are in charge.
It will be interesting to see if the DOJ can handle this problem. They have
completely bungled the interrogation of the Boston Bomber. Let's hope they
do a better job on Gitmo, but it doesn't look good.
