Day By Day by Chris Muir

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?

Poll Watch: 49 Per Cent Opposed to Closing Guantanamo Bay

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.

Is Senator Dianne Feinstein Smoking Crack? California Prisons “Eminently Capable” of Holding Gitmo Detainees

Posted Posted in Dianne Feinstein, Government
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.”

Poll Watch: 75 Per Cent Oppose Release of Guantanamo Bay Prisoners in the United States

Terrorist Detention Facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

Although President Obama’s intelligence chief stated last week that some terrorist inmates held at Guantanamo Bay may be released in the United States, only 13 per cent of American voters think that should be allowed.

The poll:

Seventy-five percent (75%) say Guantanamo inmates should not be released in this country, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure.

For 75% of voters, safety is more important than fairness in determining where terrorist suspects are released. Only 17% say fairness is more important.

National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair also said some of these inmates may receive financial assistance from the government to ease their transition into society. Seventy-four percent (74%) oppose giving taxpayer money to former Guantanamo prisoners to help them return to society.

Sixteen percent (16%) think taxpayers should provide money to the inmates.

Just 36% now agree with the president’s decision to close the prison camp for suspected terrorists at the Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba. Forty-six percent (46%) oppose closing the prison camp, and 18% are undecided.

This marks an eight-point drop in support for Obama’s decision since he announced it in late January when voters were almost evenly divided on the issue. Last November, only 32% thought the prison should be closed.

And, then the question is: Exactly where do you release them?

Can you imagine the local community uproar?
