Democrats concede that Bush was right on Guantanamo

Isn't it comforting to know that President Bush, (the man that the Democrat party, liberal mainstream media, and the liberal left assailed for years as the most ignorant President in our nations history) knew exactly what he was doing all along. It appears that President Obama and the Democrat controlled Congress are coming to that same conclusion. Obama and the Democrats condemned Bush for years on military tribunals, and now they have come to the conclusion that there the correct way to go. Now the same thing is happening with the terrorist detainees at GITMO. President Obama promised the nation on his second day in office that he was going to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay in one years time, but he had no plan as to what to do with the terrorist detainees. He thought for sure his good friends in Europe would be happy to take them off his hands, but Europe said thanks, but no thanks. Now President Obama is discovering that his Democrat Congress, led by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and most Americans have the same attitude towards bringing the terrorist detainees into the U.S. as Europe does. Not only NO, but HELL NO!

Here's just a reminder as to who the extreme liberal left wants to bring into our country and bestow U.S. Constitutional rights and welfare benefits too.

How is that if Bush himself wanted Gitmo closed?

"President Bush says he would like to close the detention center in Guantanamo in Cuba, but is waiting for a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on whether inmates can face military tribunals.

"Obviously, the Guantanamo issue is a sensitive issue for people," Mr. Bush told ARD German television. "I very much would like to end Guantanamo; I very much would like to get people to a court.

"And we're waiting for our Supreme Court to give us a decision as to whether the people need to have a fair trial in a civilian court or in a military court," he said

Secondly this is just the Dems making sure they get re-elected after seeing polls on Gitmo closing.

Politics as usual.

I personally think thyey should leave it open, mostly because there is not another good plan. In the end the decision won't effect my life but I still think it's the best option

Guys I can care less if they keep it open either. The argument that they are too dangerous to bring here is ridiculous to me.

They could put them in their own wing in a super max with no problem. These prison are more secure than Gitno is anyhow.

IF they are so dangerous to bring here, then we are saying screw the Cuban people also..... that's if they're too dangerous to have.

For every vile human being that has committed unspeakable acts are securely locked away here, I really don't see the big deal.

People who commit crimes against this country serve time in this country. What are we scared of?

Running the country is not nearly as easy as the previous 43 presidents made it look, eh Barry?

And as was obvious to the less-smitten amongst us, the pollyana gobbledygook he laid on the left to get himself elected was never going to work in reality- a fact that the calculating opportunist Obama likely knew full-well back when he was promising them the moon and the stars.

He'll use you, if you let him... that's how narcissists are.

They are not being held as criminals, they are being held as Prisoners of War (a majority of them). They have committed no specific crime but must be detained and kept from rejoining the battle.

It's absurd to bring Prisoners of War into the US Penal System. For one, our prisons are not setup to hold prisoners of war in isolation and niether are the staff trained for it.

Plus, these people are trained to be killers and as manipulators, Civilians do not have the training to deal with them.

There is nothing wrong with Gitmo. It's run by the military and is isolated and protects American prisons and the American criminals for thier disruptive presence and God knows what else.

@ VinceP1974 .... i do agree with you as to why they should remain in GITMO but i wouldn't go so far as to call them "prisoners of war". they belong to no armed forces of any country. they are what the previous administration called them, "enemy combatants" and they are not entitled too the protections of the Geneva Convention. even our current attorney general has said that. thanks for coming by and posting. please come back again.
