Fox News is reporting that the Obama administration is set to send 24 terrorist detainees free from Guantanamo Bay and let to go to other countries around the world.
The last two Gitmo terrorist let go by the Obama administration were top Al Qaeda bomb makers.
The release of these 24 other Gitmo terrorist in the coming months is going to bring to total terrorist detainee population down to about 60 which represents the absolute worst terrorist on the planet including 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed.
The Obama administration has said that it fully intends to close the military prison and bring those 60 or so terrorist into the US for imprisonment. Two prisons in Colorado, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and the Navy brig in Charleston, South Carolina are among a group of possible sites the Obama administration wants the terrorist to.
A place that always seems to be left out of the talks any more is the place the Obama administration has in the past admitted was their ideal choice for housing those Gitmo terrorist, Thomson Prison in Thomson, IL.
It is clear that by Labor Day Obama wants Gitmo as empty as possible, and will just before the election make some move to bring those terrorist into the country. Most of the sites team Obama has scouted to possibly house the Gitmo terrorist would require tens of millions of dollars to get ready and take years to do so, all while Congress continues to prohibit the transfer of the Gitmo terrorist into the country and the use of any funds to make ready or buy any prison for that purpose.
This leaves the Obama administration in a pickle.
And it is a pickle I think they will solve by going back to what was their plan A.
Democrat congresswoman Cheri Bustos and Sen. “Little” Dick Durbin have spent years funneling tens of millions of dollars into Thomson for its “activation” by using the lump sums given to the Bureau of Prisons in every spending and budget agreement of Boehner/Ryan/McConnell’s.
We’ve feared for years that Thomson was going to be the home of Gitmo terrorist like KSM ever since Pat Quinn, and Durbin first floated selling the prison the state built but never opened to Obama.
I really hope those fears don’t become reality.
Because it would really suck having Islamo-Nazi mass murdering scum living in my backyard. It is bad enough with all of the ISIS sympathizers in the Chicagoland area.
