PA 5417984 Guantamo Bay: The only person Obama released was Special Envoy Daniel Freed

ON President Barack Obama closing Guanatanmo Bay:

 “Four years ago, Barack Obama’s first act as President was an executive order to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The White House created a position at State of ‘special envoy’ to Guantanamo, whose duties included reviewing the pending cases with Attorney General Eric Holder, and diplomacy with allies to place the current detainees in order to close the facility. Four years later, the only thing being closed is Special Envoy Daniel Freed’s office.”

Guantanamo Bay serves as reminder to those who see the UN as the imprimatur of war, that things never were done legally. It’s a symbol of America’s moral turpitude. The danger is that inmates all become good people. The good Westerners must be on their side. It’s an attitude that has more in keeping with the thoughts of George Bush, who saw the prisoners as bad people, than it does and debate on what the war on terror is about…
