    Default Obama's Gitmo Debacle

    http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2013...tention-fubar/

    Obama desperately wants to close Guantanamo, while at the same time, stating that he strongly prefers detaining terrorist suspects over killing them.

    Obama has spent the vast majority of his time killing terrorist suspects (including Osama bin Laden).

    If Guantanamo is closed, in what facility is Obama going to detain terrorist suspects? Is he simply going to continue solving the dilemma by killing them, thus contradicting his own valuing of human existence?

    He keeps saying "I want to close Guantanamo Bay! I really want to close it badly!" and the thing is he doesn't need anybody's prior approval to do so. He can just close it and it will be closed. That lame guy is against his own policies. Nice voting America. You got what you voted for. "Look! I'm not racist!!! I voted for a black guy!". Stupid people. Might as well draw a watercolor picture and use all the crayons in the box so you are fair to the other crayons - Idiots with sole voting criteria - What a bowl of puke.

    I really am not convinced that he wants to close it. We really need to, though; the costs are ridiculous. Does anyone have the article that says how much it costs to keep a single prisoner in gitmo for one year? I think it was several hundred thousand dollars...

    Even the second time he won? I could understand being upset about the first election, perhaps he was elected in over a cult of personality. I think his second election kind of nullifies the thinking. He's a good president and a better man.

    I think the dilemma with Guantanamo is more in-depth than people care to give mind to. As Mal has stated, closing Guantanamo seems more a move of politics than anything, sweeping dirt under the rug.

    The half-white black president. I'm amazed that people don't understand the inherent racism of voting for a candidate because of his skin color.

    Yes, a cult is exactly what it was. Kids were singing songs about him in school. He had a logo, a slogan and a plethora of merchandise to sell him to the American people like a nicely packaged product. Supporters swallowed the propaganda hook, line and sinker. It still appalls me.

    This video never gets old.

    I wonder how many legitimately voted for him specifically because he was black. Black and Democrat, maybe. It's a thought-terminating cliché, for one to state they voted for him specifically because he was black.
