Under Barack Obama, the country has become considerably less safe and secure, as he has threatened our national security at every turn. And he’s evidently taking advantage of every last day he has left in office to continue risking our national security. Obama has now decided that it’s a good idea to release 18 terrorists from Guantanamo Bay.
Specifically, Obama plans to transfer the terrorists from Guantanamo Bay to Italy, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. It will be the largest transfer of the Obama administration. It will leave approximately 42 terrorists at Guantanamo Bay.
Obama previously pledged to permanently close the prison by the end of the his presidency, saying it was “contrary” to American values. 242 terrorists were imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay when Obama took office, and of that number, only 59 remain. Obama seems to have no concern whatsoever that sending terrorists to places like Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates makes it incredibly easy for them to become radicalized again and rejoin another terrorist group.
Thankfully, we’ll have a new president in just under a month… hopefully, one who isn’t as cavalier with national security as Obama has been.
