Skip to comments.President Obama sends AG Eric Holder to Gitmo (a photographic preview)

Debra Burlingame has previously reported President Obama smiled and admitted that he had not visited Guantanamo (to 40 family members of the victims of the USS Cole and September 11 attacks during his February 6, 2009 White House meeting with them).
Yesterday, Attorney General Eric Holder announced he will visit Gitmo:
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. told reporters today that he would travel Monday to the U.S. military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as part of his effort to determine how to handle the 245 remaining terrorism suspects detained there. "We need to have our feet on the ground to really see what is going on down at the facility, to see how people are being detained, to talk to people down there about the interrogation techniques that are being used," Holder said. ... The Attorney General characterized the looming trip as "an important first step as we try to resolve the issues that the president has put before me as the chairman of those review committees."
As none of us were invited to join AG Holder on his trip, click the image below to get a preview of what he will find at Guantanamo:
Tell me again why President Barack Obama wants to shut down the detention facilities at Gitmo? America's image?
Better yet, click here and tell President Obama to 'Keep Gitmo Open'.

What’s he charged with?
Oh wait, you don’t mean as a prisoner?
How long will they detain Holder?
Oh, NOT to stay?
I sure hope that one of those maggots flings a healthy handful his properly-nutritioned poop at Holder.
This entire Gitmo fiasco, ranging from our judiciary to the politics of it, is a disaster for America’s national security and intel gathering efforts. Now our self-focused government turns these madmen loose to kill again.
Sounds to me like the Administration is setting the stage for a major course-reversal on the announced closure of GITMO. Wonder if the MSM is going to let them off the hook?
Thanks for posting. The Agitator General fits right in with the rest of them.
shame he cannot be self-checked in
In our dreams!
Do you know what they charge for a room that big at Boston College?
Now sit in there until you can prove that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right.
Hopefully, they will keep him. Any chance we can get President Buckwheat to make a visit as well?....red
sounds to me like they are getting ready to do just the opposite.
He is only doing this to justify the decisions that they have already made.
Does Holder consider the terrorists to be cowards ?
Or just the members of the military ?
The terrorists maim and kill and then hide behind American communist lawyers to gain their release.
His kind of victims.
Last night as I was channel surfing, I caught Rachael Maddow on MSNBC talking about a Gitmo serviceman she had on who had complaints about the place. Then she said she was going to have another guy on who served there and also had complaints.
MSNBC will stop at nothing...
