It’s almost like President Obama doesn’t want to keep America safe or something.
We are at the war with al Qaeda, the Taliban, and other assorted folks who want to kill us. Obama made a campaign promise to close the Guantanamo camp in Cuba and signed an Executive Order to close the camp. Sadly, no one wants to take the prisoners back and Obama’s trial balloons to incarcerate them in the United States has met with Not In My Back Yard resistance.
We are still at war with our enemies, even though Obama doesn’t like to call it a war or call the vile little pigs terrorists. What’s more, international law says that enemy combatants can be held until the war is over.
The human-caused disasters, or whatever feel-good name Obama is calling them these days, do not have the right to be released.
According to a Rasmussen poll released today, 75% of Americans worry that closing Gitmo will set terrorists free.
Seventy-five percent (75%) of U.S. voters are at least somewhat concerned that dangerous terrorists will be set free if the Guantanamo prison camp is closed and some prisoners are transferred to other countries. Fifty-six percent (56%) are very concerned.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 24% are not concerned about the potential danger.
Support for the president’s plan to close the prison camp for suspected terrorists at the Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba continues to erode. It’s been steadily dropping since Obama announced the camp closure just after taking office in January. Only 32% of voters now favor closing the prison camp, down six points from May and down 12 points since the President announced his decision in January.
