If you’ve watched the news lately, you can see the Obama administration is making a case to close Gitmo before the President leaves office.
Why do I conclude this?
- The “torture” report issued by Democrats stated that terrorists were mistreated at Gitmo. Aren’t these the same people who cut off Americans’ heads?
- The “normalizing” of America’s relationship with Cuba.
- Obama has talked about putting terrorists in the Thomson Correctional Facility in northwestern Illinois, my home state.
Do we really want terrorists on our home soil? What happens if they escape?
I’m neither a Republican nor a Democrat, but I certainly admired FDR. When spies were apprehended during World War Two, FDR sent them to the electric chair. They weren’t given “rights” in civilian courts.
Can the new Republican-led Congress stop these controversial moves?
We’ll have to wait and see.
