Eric Holder Should Resign: No Gitmo Inmates Should Be Released In The US
Let me not just say “no,” but, “hell, no” to this,
Attorney General Eric Holder said some detainees being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, may end up being released in the U.S. as the Obama administration works with foreign allies to resettle some of the prisoners.
….European justice ministers met with Mr. Holder earlier this week and pressed for details on how many Guantanamo prisoners the U.S. planned to release domestically, as part of any agreement for allies to accept detainees. Mr. Holder said U.S. officials would work to respond to the questions European officials have over U.S. Guantanamo plans.
For “people who can be released there are a variety of options that we have and among them is the possibility is that we would release them into this country,” Mr. Holder said. “That process is ongoing and we’ve not made any determinations or made any requests of anybody at this point.”
This may be news to an Obama Administration that thinks the “War on Terror” is over because they refuse to use that phrase anymore, but we’re trying to keep terrorists OUT of this country, not resettle them here.
Under no circumstances should anyone from Gitmo be released in the United States and Republicans in Congress should be calling for Holder to resign for having suggested it.
