Inhofe, R-Tulsa, praised the group, Move America Forward, and said he is pushing legislation that would prevent any of the prisoners from being moved to prisons in the United States.
Inhofe, who recently returned from a visit to the prison in Cuba, said the detainees are treated well and that the prison is serving a valuable purpose.
Asked whether the prisoners should remain at the prison indefinitely, Inhofe said, "I wish there were more choices. There really arent. I guess we could execute them. Do you want to do that?
Melanie Morgan, Move America Forward chairman, said Obamas "misguided decision to close the prison would "impact the safety of every American.
Attending the news conference were relatives of people killed in the 9/11 attacks and in the war in Iraq. The groups television ad asks people to sign a petition opposing Obamas order.
The president met last week with victims relatives of the 9/11 and USS Cole attacks and said he thinks closing the prison would keep the nation safe and ensure "swift and certain justice for the detainees, according to the White House.
WASHINGTON Sen. Jim Inhofe on Tuesday helped a nonpartisan group launch a media ad opposing President Barack Obamas order to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay.
Why don’t they just put up a nice picket fence around that empty lot next door to the Obama’s Chicago home?
Asked whether the prisoners should remain at the prison indefinitely, Inhofe said, "I wish there were more choices. There really arent. I guess we could execute them. Do you want to do that?Now there's an idea! They should have been shot on the battlefield.
Send them to live with Pelosi, Reid, and each member of Congress. Be sure to send the worst terrorist to live with Zero and his shrew. You could describe it as foreign terrorists being housed by domestic terrorists. They should all get along well since they all want to destroy the USA.
That might be some fun. We won't make the same mistake twice.
Melanie, we need you to represent us.
Good idea. Mussolosi has that nice vineyard/hotel in Napa Valley, CA.
That should serve as a welcome respite after suffering all that heat and humidity at Club Gitmo (as Rush Limbaugh calls it).
Now there you go.
She should run for office!
Yes and I would like to see Kristinn run too.
Yep. I agree
Good night all.
keep ‘em where dey belong ping
They could trip and fall out of the back of a helicopter on the way from Club Gitmo...(I’m just sayin’...)
Happens all the time where I come from...you always have to keep looking up...plays hell with car roofs (rooves??)...
They don’t even have time to get “Allah Akbar” out...it’s more like “ALLAH ACK-SPLAT!” or sometimes just “ACCK!!!”
And those unwinding turbans on the way down are hazards to the local bird population too...environmental disaster...the Speckle-Butted Grackel population is being DEVASTATED from this. The Sierra Club filed an Official Complaint because of it.
And NOBODY is talking about the visual mess created from the fact that they don’t wear Fruit O’ The Looms under them there robes...
But it’s an option...
glad Im yer FRiend...
practice shovin em out from 6 ft for a few days...makes em wonder 'when'...
I still maintain that they tripped...
Has a nice ring to it.
“Achmed jumped a thousand feet without a Parachute,
an’ ‘E ain’t gonna Jump no more...
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die,
72 Virgins, gonna spit right in yer eye..
Gory, gory what a helluva way to die...
an’ ‘E ain’t gonna Jump no more...
Quick: What do you call a Club Gitmo Paratrooper?
Ha! Try the Veal - I’m here till Tuesday!!!
