The Obama Administrations’ handling of the transfer of Guantanamo Bay terrorists to Bermuda has created quite the Flap.
Senior aides to President Barack Obama accompanied four Uighur prisoners as they were flown from Guantanamo Bay to the British colony of Bermuda, without the UK being informed, it was revealed yesterday.

In an escalating diplomatic row over the transfer of the former terrorist suspects, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the transfer with British Foreign Secretary David Miliband in what was said to be an uneasy conversation. Privately Whitehall officials accused America of treating Britain, with whom it is supposed to have a “special relationship”, with barely disguised contempt.

One senior official said: “The Americans were fully aware of the foreign-policy understanding we have with Bermuda and they deliberately chose to ignore it. This is not the kind of behaviour one expects from an ally.”

I think Obama’s problem with the Brits started with giving the British PM Gordoen Brown DVD’s in the wrong format.

Isn;t it becomig obvious that Teleprompter “The One” is a rookie who has no idea on how to conduct foreign policy?

Terrorist Detention Facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

And, only 38 per cent agree.

The question:

Do you agree or disagree with President Obama’s decision to close the Guanatanamo Prison Camp?

  • Agree – 38%
  • Disagree – 49%
  • Not Sure – 13%

The support for keeping Guantanamo’s prison camp open declined from 59% last summer to 49% last November to 42% in January. In fact, shortly after the President announced his intention to close the camp, a narrow plurality agreed with him.

Since then, the trends have moved in the opposite direction. The number who want to keep the facility open increased from 42% in January to 46% in April and 49% now. The number who agree with the President’s position has fallen from 44% in January to 38% today.

Most Democrats (61%) now agree with the President on this issue. However, 79% of Republicans and 54% of unaffiliateds hold the opposite view.

Obama does NOT have a plan regarding Guantanamo Bay and it is my bet he changes his mind about closing the facility. He will at first delay the matter and then do nothing when it fades from public view.

California U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein on the floor of the Senate today

Hell, Dianne, you are so out of touch and out of California so much you probably don’t even know where the damn California prisons are.

No thank you, we Californians don’t want any of the GITMO terrorist folks in our state.

Why?

Because they will be placed in OUR neighborhoods – not yours but OURS.

By the way, after her little suck up to the LEFT Senator Feinstein voted to withhold funding for moving the Gitmo terrorists out of Guantanamo Bay because Obama had “NO PLAN.”

All to be appropriated without any specific plan on what to do with the prisoner detainees or where they will be sent.

What is the plan, Mr. President?

Do you have one?
