Taxpayers To Fund Building Of New Prison So Obama Can Fulfill Idiotic Campaign Promise

I have a swell idea, since Obama has made the purely political and idiotic decision to close the Guantanamo Bay terrorist detention center, which cost U.S. taxpayers millions of dollars to whip into shape so that it could securely hold hundreds of hard core anti-American murderous fanatics 90 miles across an ocean, why don’t we whiz away millions more building a brand spanking new place on American soil to hold the very same guys? Man if that isn’t an efficient way for the government to blow our hard earned tax money, especially in this economic environment, I don’t know what is.

Now even the Obama administration admits there are dozens of terrorist thugs being held within Club Gitmo that cannot be hauled before a civilian criminal court and certainly can’t be released back into the world’s population because they are simply too dangerous. While he received all kinds of dreamy eyed adoration from legions of left wing moonbats for promising the world he was going to close Guantanamo Bay because it was such a terrible blight upon the reputation of the United States the fact of the matter is we have no place to put these fanatical wackos when the detention centers are eventually shut down. Many European countries are dragging their feet when it comes to sharing responsibility for accepting even the prisoners who are cleared for release and nobody wants the real hard core cases so this country has no choice but to deal with them.

Obama’s solution? Well according to the washingtonpost.com,

Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said yesterday that the Pentagon may have to build a new facility to house detainees from the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, to hedge against political opposition around the country to the incarceration of the inmates in existing federal or military facilities in the United States.

“I fully expect to have 535 pieces of legislation before this is over saying, ‘Not in my district, not in my state,’ ” Gates said, referring to the number of senators and representatives in Congress. He said the Pentagon wants to have $50 million at hand in case it has to build a prison on short notice.

In January, President Obama ordered the closure of the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, within a year. Gates said the facilities, which cost tens of millions of dollars to construct, are likely to be “mothballed.”

Gates also said the administration, which is reviewing the cases of each of the 241 detainees at Guantanamo Bay, has begun to grapple with how to handle those prisoners deemed too dangerous to release but who cannot be put on trial.

Ah yes sleight of hand you can believe in. Truth be told Obama doesn’t want to have anything to do with these terrorists who are hell bent on bringing mayhem and death to America and her citizens. His choice is to avoid the issue altogether so as to not chip away at his political capitol in this country and around the globe.

Obama Declines Iran Offer of al-Qaida Members

When Iranian government official Ahmad Samavati arrived in Washington, D.C., in February at the head of a five-man negotiating team, he thought he had an offer the Obama administration couldn’t refuse.

The Iranian regime was going to turn over scores of top al-Qaida operatives, including some on the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorists” list.

To Samavati’s surprise, the State Department officials he met declined the offer. “They told him they did not want any al-Qaida people. They told him they didn’t want them in the United States,” an Iranian source familiar with the negotiations told Newsmax.

The decline, and the very fact that the Iranian regime sent Samavati to Washington in the first place, shows the profound policy shift that has occurred in both Tehran and Washington since Barack Obama became president.

But Washington seems to be going in one direction and Tehran in another.

In the annual report on terrorism it released last April, the State Department blasted Iran for its unwillingness to cooperate in arresting, rendering, or controlling al-Qaida members operating from its territory.

“Iran has repeatedly resisted numerous calls to transfer custody of its AQ [al-Qaida] detainees to their countries of origin or third countries for interrogation or trial. Iran also continued to fail to control the activities of some AQ members who fled to Iran following the fall of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan,” the report stated.

Obama’s determination to shift gears on Iran is no secret.

He announced his intention to negotiate with the regime during the presidential campaign, and he has repeated that determination many times since taking office.

But no one at Foggy Bottom will comment on why the State Department refused the Iranian offer in February, despite numerous phone messages and e-mails entreaties.

Of course this wouldn’t be the first time in recent history that a Democrat president refused to grab a terrorist when they had the chance and with Obama in the White House for another three and a half years it certainly won’t be the last.
