Obama Now Planning on Bringing Dangerous Terrorists to a Prison Near You in Order to Close Gitmo
Obama officials are surveying prisons inside the USA in order to see where they can ship the dangerous terrorists that are now housed in the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, terrorist detention facility.
Closing Gitmo is one thing Obama promised to do but hasn’t followed through on… yet.
Despite that it is still illegal to transfer Gitmo prisoners inside the US, Obama is gearing up to do it anyway.
The Department of Defense notified lawmakers Friday that teams will visit two military installations in the United States — Fort Leavenworth in Kansas and the Naval Brig in Charleston, S.C. — to conduct “site surveys” looking into transferring a “limited number” of Guantanamo detainees, Pentagon and Capitol Hill sources told Fox News.
The move, coming on the same day Secretary of State John Kerry marked the re-opening of the U.S. Embassy in Cuba, has already triggered a backlash on Capitol Hill. But, despite existing congressional restrictions on moving the detainees to U.S. soil, the notice itself suggests officials are wasting no time exploring transfer options for those at the controversial Cuba prison camp.
One Capitol Hill source, reading from the notification, said the first Defense Department survey team was due to visit Fort Leavenworth “starting today [Friday].”
The Naval Brig in Charleston will be visited in the “next several weeks,” said another source, reading from the same notification, which went out Friday morning.
