Skip to comments.Feinstein: Send Gitmo Detainees Home (By all means, send them over to her home please)
Posted on 04/26/2013 1:12:27 PM PDT by bestintxas
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the chairwoman of the Senate intelligence committee, is calling for the repatriation of low-level detainees from Yemen currently held at Guantanamo Bay.
Her move comes just as scores of inmates at the prison continue a hunger strike to protest their detention.
Fifty-six of the 86 detainees approved for transfer more than three years ago are said to be from Yemen, but President Barack Obama halted any further transfers to that country after the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound airliner by a Yemen-based branch of al-Qaida on Dec. 25, 2009.
In a letter to President Obamas National Security Adviser, Tom Donilon, the California senator said that although she had supported his ban then, she thought it was now time to look at whether Yemeni President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi , a staunch opponent of the terrorist group, could provide sufficient security guarantees to warrant sending the Yemenis back, reports The New York Times.
Although al-Qaida still has a strong presence in Yemen, I believe it would be prudent to revisit the decision to halt transfers to Yemen and assess whether President Hadis government with appropriate assistance, would be able to securely hold detainees in Sana, wrote Feinstein.
The White House did not immediately respond to the letter, according to the Times, which noted that Feinstein also urged Obama to resume the administrations efforts to close GITMO.

Is it fair to tar all homicidal psychopaths with the same brush?
Why not 0 said he was going to close Gitmo in
2008. I guess those poor terrorists @ Gitmo cannot depend on a Bummer campaign promise either!
Remember all the uproar when they wanted to move the Gitmo detainees to a US prison?? People were upset - they didn’t want them on US soil. Little did they realize the door has been wide open and there are way more of them already here than are at Gitmo.
When it comes to lying Zer0 is not ideological or biased in any way. He lies to everybody.
I agree with Fineswine. We should send them home. Drop them out of a C-17 from 30,000 feet without parachutes.
This bitch and her husband have raped the US. Her husband has used her membership in the Foreign Relations Committee to make billions of dollars on Chinese Contracts and now has secured the contract for California’s bullet train. She lives in a gorgeous mansion replete with maids quarters overlooking the SF Golden Gate Bridge and stunning views of the city hidden away form the hoi-polloi! These, like the Kennedys, Clintons, and Kerrys are among the worst of the liberal hypocrites.
Dear Diane: Their “home” is Hell.
Send them to Hell.
These guys go right back to business as usual “Kill all the Christians and Jews”....”Conform or Die”....
