I’ve always been curious about the motivation behind the left’s desperate desire to remove prisoners from Guantanamo Bay Cuba. The explanation that we shouldn’t have prisons outside of the US is belied by Obama’s continuation of the Rendition Program as well as the prison that we’re running in Afghanistan.
Well, I guess that it’s pretty obvious now why. It looks like Obama is setting up to continue down the path that Jimmy Carter blazed, and that he’s going to parrot Carter’s return of Panama with the return of Guantanamo Bay back to Cuba (http://www.reuters.com/article/worldNews/idUSTRE50S6WF20090129).
Obama must be thinking that Guantanamo would be a good place for Russia to set up a ballistic missle base.
