House Democrats Reject Funding to Close Guantanamo


www.democracynow.org

On Capitol Hill, House Democrats have rejected a request from President Obama for $80 million to close the US prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. House Democrats removed the funding request from a $94 billion emergency spending bill to cover the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. House Appropriations Chair David Obey said the funding wasn’t included because Obama has not yet outlined a concrete plan to close Guantanamo.

Well this is interesting, the house democrats going against the all powerful Barry. I think that gitmo should most definitely be closed, it just continues to make the US look bad. The only concern would be what to do with these prisoners. So its nice to see congress saying we are not just going to approve and 80 million dollar plan that in fact has no plan at all...

When it comes down to it Barry O knows he can't just "close" Gitmo. These prisoners are not wanted anywhere in the world, including the US. They know many Americans will go ballistic if these prisoners are released in the US. This is a nice out for Barry O.
