Senate Pulls Guantanamo Funding

Posted by cann0nba11 on May 19, 2009

From Fox News. Maybe that knee-jerk, code-pink supporting, anyone but Bush, executive order on Day 2 of the Four Years of Hell tour was a bad idea after all? Maybe our president could learn how to THINK before making decisions?

Senate Democrats threw cold water on President Obama’s plans to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center Tuesday, pulling money for the closure from a $91 billion war spending request and publicly opposing the transfer of any detainees to U.S. soil.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Democrats not only oppose the release of detainees into the United States but also oppose the transfer of detainees to U.S. prisons.

“We will never allow terrorists to be released in the United States,” he said, adding: “Part of what we don’t want is for them to be put in prisons in the United States. We don’t want them around in the United States.”
