Skip to comments.Pentagon official: US must take Gitmo prisoners
Posted on 05/20/2009 7:01:55 AM PDT by Jet Jaguar
In an escalation of arguments over closing a prison facility at Guantanamo Bay, a top Pentagon official says members of Congress must rethink their opposition to accepting these detainees into the United States.
Michele Flournoy is President Barack Obama's new Pentagon policy chief. She says members of Congress need to remember that closing the stigmatized prison in Cuba will mean hard choices for everyone. She spoke after Senate Democrats said they won't pay for closure until the administration delivers a satisfactory plan for what to do with the detainees.

Fine! We’ll set up a half-way house right next DOOR to her domicile!
How about moving them to your house, Michele? Another affirmative action incompetent heard from. Elections have consequences, all of them bad in the current situation.
To Obama re the Gitmo terrorists-you wanted them , they’re yours. Put them in your house in Chicago, put them in the basement of Congress. They’re yours and the rats’ babies. Tell Pelosi to take some home with her on her jet.
It would be a great boost to the Iraqi economy to have them stored there.
Gosh, I must have missed that civics class where the Executive branch bureaucracy was given authority over the legislative branch. Someone fill me in...where is that in the Constitution?
Michele should volunteer to take them into her home and be responsible for everything they do.
Isn’t the FBI always on the hunt for terrorist inside the USA?
First murder by one of these cretins and it’s curtains for the Congress critters who approve this. ZERO, well we know ZERO doesn’t care.
“Michele Flournoy is President Barack Obama’s new Pentagon policy chief.”
You just cannot fix stupid.
And we certainly can't have that, can we?
BTW, why does Gitmo even have a fence?
Welcome to New Kenya (Africa U.S.A.)
Where the law of the jungle has replaced the Law of the Land! /sarcasm
Gitmo has a fence to keep Cubans out. They know there is good food in there, and possibly a ticket to the USA.
She’s got the necessary pedigree for the Obama Administration: graduate of Harvard, Oxford, Kennedy School of Government, Clinton Administration veteran, Democrat donor, opposed the war, etc.
“She spoke after Senate Democrats said they won’t pay for closure until the administration delivers a satisfactory plan for what to do with the detainees.”
Shoot them? Just a thought.
“closing the stigmatized prison”
I’m still trying to figure out how it’s “stigmatized”. Did these people expect to be treated better when they declared war against us?
Yo, Michele, how about we put them in a group house down the block from where you live.
I'll tell you what Ms. Flournoy, if their own people won't take them, why on earth should the American taxpayers give them more succor than they have at Guantanamo? The cost of relocating these terrorists is mind boggling....but hey, this is the Obama Era where millions became billions and those are now trillions....moving a few souls to the high ground and close a better solution is really the Obama way.....
Since when did the Pentagon get to tell civilians what to do? We, the People, have the ultimate say in this. For once our representatives are listening to our voices.
