It Was Stupid In 2007 And It Remains Stupid Now

President Obama cares more about his legacy than he does about national security.
But those with a brain already knew that.
From Fox News:
The Pentagon is expected to release a plan next week on President Obama’s years-long effort to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center that suggests a Colorado prison dubbed “the Alcatraz of the Rockies” as one suitable site to relocate expected life-long detainees, Obama administration officials say.
Obama made a campaign promise in his 2008 White House bid to close the facility, arguing the move would be in the United States’ best financial, national security and foreign policy interests and in the name of justice -- considering some of the detainees have been held for nearly nine years without trial or sentencing.
However, critics of the promise, including many Republicans, fear transferring detainees to the U.S. mainland as part of an overall closure plan poses too much of a homeland security risk. They also say the president has yet to submit a closure plan and have been critical of the administration recently allowing some known terrorists to return to the Middle East.
The Florence, Colo., prison is among seven U.S. facilities in Colorado, Kansas and South Carolina being considered.
So, let's two of the states involved are Red conservative states and Colorado is a swing state, but since they passed the pot bill, just about everyone is high so that makes things even worse.
And now, you invite Islamic extremists to come and try suicide missions to get their Islamic brothers released.
Finally, if Obama really cares about the prisoners, it seems that these terrorists are going to be going to more strict prisons compared to what they have now, so again, this is about his legacy.
It was a stupid idea when he first floated it and 8 years ago and it remains a stupid idea.  And now the GOP has to try and protect the country from Obama again.
