Just a week before the final Obama state of the union address and while we’re focused on the unconstitutional executive orders on “gun control,” President Obama will continue his disregard for the rule of law.
This action comes at a time when Islamic jihadism is at an all time high and its reach spans the entire globe. President Obama will once again violate Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the US Constitution — but at least this time Obama is complying with his own signed National Defense Authorization Act.
As reported by the impeccable Catherine Herridge at Fox News, “The group of 17 detainees expected to be transferred out of Guantanamo Bay as early as this week includes “multiple bad guys” and “Al Qaeda followers,” a source who has reviewed the list told Fox News.Little is known publicly about which prisoners are being prepared for transfer, but the Obama administration has notified Congress it plans to ship out 17 detainees – some of whom could be transferred within days. While the identities of the men are closely held, the source who spoke with Fox News said it includes “multiple bad guys … not taxi drivers and cooks.”This is a reference to the administration’s transfer of Ibrahim al Qosi to Sudan in 2012. Despite entering a “re-integration program,” the one-time cook for Usama bin Laden has now fled to Yemen, where he is among the leadership of Al Qaeda in Yemen. That transfer is now said to be a source of considerable heartburn for the Obama administration.
As for those on the docket for immediate transfer, the source told Fox News the administration will not identify the detainees until they are relocated in their new home countries — because knowing who they are in advance would create further roadblocks and increase the controversy. The move to clear out 17 detainees is seen as part of the administration’s long-term plan to ultimately shutter the detention camp. The transfer of 17 prisoners would bring the number of detainees left down to 90 – the bulk of whom cannot be transferred to another country.”
Now, we’ve shared with you the insidious claim President Obama made during his final press conference of 2015 when he stated that closing GITMO is part of his counter-terrorism strategy. If there was a more backwards policy, someone please tell me.
