The “Guantanamo” 6 should move to Mujica’s home

Before leaving office, President Mujica of Uruguay took 6 of “Gitmo’s finest”, or some of the worst criminals and terrorists sitting in that prison.

It started out as a little “leftist play” by the very leftist Mujica.  Like many in the left, Mr Mujica never understood why these men were sitting in prison.

My guess is that no one is laughing anymore at Mr Mujica’s move.

This is the latest as reported by The NY Times:

“Uruguay’s foreign minister said Monday that six former Guantanamo Bay detainees resettled here will be out of a house and off public assistance unless they agree to terms they have so far rejected, the latest in an increasingly public battle over who is financially responsible for the men and for how long.

Foreign Minister Rodolfo Nin Novoa made the statements to reporters as four of the men kept up a protest in front of the U.S. Embassy that they began Friday, spending the nights with sleeping bags.

The agreement drawn up by a local agency that works with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees promises the men free private housing through February 2016 and a continuation of the monthly stipend of $600 (15,000 pesos) that they have been receiving since arriving.

“If they don’t sign, they won’t receive any income,” Nin Novoa said.”

I feel bad for the good people of Uruguay.   They are now stuck with 6 criminals who have no plans to adjust or conform to a Western way of life.

This is Mujica’s little mess.  I guess that Mujica never understood why these 6 men were in Guantanamo.

Hopefully, people in Uruguay will learn two important truths about the men in Guantanamo:

1) They are terrorists not victims; and,

2) This is why most countries have not taken men from the prison.   The US has been offering to relocate these men but most countries say no.   Wonder why?

Maybe Mr Mujica should have done his homework before bringing these 6 problems to Uruguay.  The US government never agreed to support or provide any assistance for the six men.   They were flown to Uruguay with no guarantees.   

What do we do now?   Let’s start by having the 6 terrorists move in with Mr Mujica!  

He should be responsible for them since he made this mess possible in the first place.
