Obama Budget Seeks $100 Million To Close Guantanamo Detention Facility
WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- U.S. President Barack Obama's budget requests $100 million to help close the Guantanamo military detention facility, after House Democrats stripped out a similar request from a bill to pay for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq through the rest of fiscal 2009.
The president had included a request of $80 million to pay for the closing the prison in an $83.4 billion war funding bill submitted to Congress last month.
The revised $100 million request was included in Obama's $3.6 trillion budget for fiscal 2010, details of which were released Thursday.
The request is small compared to the overall cost to pay for the wars or the $ 3.6 trillion budget. Yet the initial request provoked a strong reaction on Capitol Hill by lawmakers who are uncomfortable with the idea of bringing Guantanamo detainees onto American soil

The bigger question is what to do with the terrorists?
Perhaps have them join the local chapter of ACORN ? ;-)
Does this empty suited fool ever stop spending money?Didn't he already allocate money towards this? To study it and waste more money?
Possibly to build a new prison for them. WHAT A FREAKING WASTE!!! Gitmo is ideal for them now. It is all about Obama wanting our enemies to have rights. It is a sad day in America this marxist fool is ruining our country by the seconds... every day.
Probably going to be used as payoff to whomever takes these jerks off his hands.
Did he look in his campaign cash accounts?
Payoffs to those who take the detainees in.
China said they would take them but the long legged mack daddy does not want them killed or tortured.
We are paying for this waste.
“The bigger question is what to do with the terrorists?”
I had an idea yesterday. Put them into zoos, all around the country. Just throw food into their cages once a day. Hose them off once a month.
It would cost far less than that to BUILD the damn prison.
I guess that sounds correct so why does he need so much damned money? To further stall and pay off the ACLU for the terrorists he so protects?
Only if we put them in with the donkeys. ;-)
A zoo is too good for them. The ACLU would have them released on human rights and PETA charges.
Here is a stupid idea.
You take every terrorist who fought against America, line them up on a wall and put a bullet in each ones head.
Basically, you fulfill the Geneva Convention obligation that someone who fights against a nation who is not a soldier of that nation has no rights.
The ones who didn’t fight, but got caught up in all the action get sent back to their host country. Airfare would cost about 1/4 million and bullets at todays prices would cost about the same.
$100 million dollars to close a prison?
How could it cost more than a few hundred thousand dollars at the most?
This is just more funny money for Obama to misappropriate and pass on to his cronies.
This ticks me off beyond words.
They'll just sell their organs to the highest bidder. What's the big deal?
