Skip to comments.GOP's Chambliss: Obama speech will be 'viewed by terrorists as victory'
Posted on 05/23/2013 1:36:36 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
The senior Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee said President Obama's national security speech will be "viewed by terrorists as a victory."
Sen. Saxby Chambliss (Ga.) made the remarks in a statement released moments after Obama's speech. He focused his criticism on Obama's plans to move toward closing the Guantanamo Bay detainee camp.
"We knew five years ago that closing Guantanamo was a bad idea and would not work," Chambliss said. "Yet, todays speech sends the message to Guantanamo detainees that if they harass the dedicated military personnel there enough, we will give in and send them home, even to Yemen."

But in this instance, he is correct.
Obama is doing another distraction--no one is "pressuring" the Assclown to close Gitmo. The "journalist" at The Hill says there is pressure, but that is bullcrap.
What the Clown is trying to do is change the subject from IRS, AP phone records seizure, BENGHAZI (where he and Hitlery have blood on their hands), high gas and food prices....Obama wants NOTHING like these things discussed.
So he spews out another ignorant speech about closing Gitmo...to try and make the media and conservatives look somewhere else.
Nice to see that Saxby has rediscovered his spine. I don’t expect it to last very long, but hope I’m wrong.
WOW , free car
Obama’s re-election was seen as a victory
How bout releasing the Benghazi survivors while you’re at it, POS?
Good on Chambliss. Obama needs to stick to what he’s good at - playing golf, taking vacations and hob nobbing with the pretty people.
It’s been well established that he and his top people know nothing about nothing. That speech he read - did he get it out of some newspaper?
He’s right. Freeing the Gitmo jihadis was one of the things the Boston terrorists wanted.
Terrorism works. Thanks, Bambi.
