Obama's Closing Guantanamo Bay

Just heard this on the radio this morning that Obama was keeping his campaign promise and shortly before 11:30 a.m. EST, President Barack Obama signed executive orders to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center

Found this article at CNSNews to explain the dangers of this :( -excerpts below:

Obama’s Decision to Close Gitmo Called ‘Dangerous and Irresponsible
“Obama swore to protect our Constitution, which means his top responsibility is to protect the American people. It is shocking that one of his first actions would be to close a prison that keeps Americans safe from admitted terrorists,” said Move America Forward Chairman Melanie Morgan. ...

Where will we put them?

“The key question is where do you put these terrorists? Do you bring them inside our borders? Do you release them back into the battlefield?

....“We know that at least 10 percent of released Gitmo inmates return to terrorism. Does Mr. Obama want to endanger our troops fighting radical jihadists just to pacify his European buddies and radicals who don’t care about the safety of our troops?”

The Associated Press recently reported that detainees who have been released from Guantanamo Bay are “increasingly returning to the fight against the United States and its allies.” The report says 61 terrorist detainees released have rejoined the fight."

closing Guantanamo represents a step in the right direction; pretty soon the U.S. will be able to join the world community once again
