Is Obama closing Gitmo to prepare his post‐presidency?

(My new American Thinker post)

Over the last couple of years, President Obama has made a nuclear deal with Iran, put a U.S. Embassy in Cuba and continues to release terrorists from Gitmo, as reported by USA Today:

Rep. Ed Royce, the California Republican who chairs the Foreign Affairs Committee, called the released detainees “hardened terrorists” who will be a threat for years.

“In its race to close Gitmo, the Obama administration is doubling down on policies that put American lives at risk,” Royce said in a statement. “Once again, hardened terrorists are being released to foreign countries where they will be a threat.”

The Pentagon, in a statement, said an inter-agency review board considered their potential threat to security and unanimously approved six of the 15 for release, A consensus was reached on release of the remaining nine. 

There are 61 detainees remaining at Guantanamo.

Are we safer? How can you put terrorists back in the game and assume that they will pursue a peaceful path?   

So why is President Obama doing this?  

My theory is that he is planning his post presidency. He wants to be an American version of Nelson Mandela, a man who travels around the Third World and left-wing precincts.    

How do you get a standing ovation in those corners? Mr. Obama can say that he ended wars, closed Gitmo, ended the isolation of Cuba and signed a nuclear deal with Iran. All of these positions are extremely popular in the anti-U.S. corners of the world!

I ask again: how are any of these actions good for the U.S.? They are not, from a nuclear deal with Iran to throwing dissidents under the bus in Cuba to releasing more terrorists that attack us around the world.

Sadly, there is no one in the Democratic Party willing to stand up and tell President Obama to stop it.

Obama talking GITMO before going to Cuba

(My new Babalu post)

Maybe President Obama should check out Donald Trump’s “The art of making a deal”. Trump is not my candidate but he knows how to negotiate, specially the part about putting all of your cards on the table in public.

We hear that President Obama will send another proposal to Congress about GITMO.

It makes no sense because he has not forced the Castro regime to give up anything in this new relationship.    In other words, GITMO for what in return?

Of course, where are you going to put the people in GITMO?   Nobody wants them. Democrat majorities rejected the idea of bringing them to the US.

So where are these people going to?   Many are going back to the fight.
