Posted on 05/23/2010 5:32:17 AM PDT by GVnana
In an interesting development the House Armed Services Committee unanimously approved legislation that would block Gitmo, Illinois from coming to fruition. In fact, theyve blocked any Gitmo terrorist from being transferred anywhere into the interior of the USA. This is a blow to Obamas desires to shut Gitmo down and to bring terrorists to a prison near you.
Wednesday the committee approved a defense bill for 2011 that includes language to prevent moving detainees into any US facility inside our borders and also blocked any funding to even study the possibility.
Amusingly, the New York Times tried to spin this as the Republicans fault. After noting that Obama missed his own self-imposed, one-year deadline to close Gitmo, The Times tries to make readers think that this newest setback it is all because of those mean ol Republicans that are blocking Obamas valiant efforts.
Newsflash, NYT, this approval to block Gitmo, Illinois was unanimous. If you need help with that big word it means all the Democrats on the committee voted to block their own presidents Gitmo plans. And this is not to mention that the Democrats control Congress and could easily have approved of Obamas plans if they had wanted to.

Maybe the Democrats are finally reading the writing on the wall for November.
Good article. Well written. Sweet!
The NY Times didn’t get the memo. If islamabama can’t close Gitmo he has only one option. And that is to let the terrorists return home.
I will gladly take responsibility for this development.
Somehow I will believe it when I see it since the dems are as big a bunch of liars as the jihadists.
The American people, in general, disagree with that idea.
I don't think the Democrats have enough time remaining before the election to repair the damage. I know my guy, Canoli, doesn't. He's trying to sound rational and he's even lost some weight, but he's gonna' go down in the next election.
Methinks the hearse has been backed up to the Dems' door and they have smelt the flowers.
And they are all whistling past the rat traps with the carcasses of the Dems unfortunate enough to have faced an election thus far.
Isnt the Bama boy establishing prisons in Afghanistan now?
Slowly the worm is turning.
