GOP Sen: No One in the World Understands Obama’s Position on Gitmo

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” in speaking about President Barack Obama’s attempts to clear terrorists out of Guantanamo Bay, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) said, “I don’t understand the White House position at all, and I think neither does the rest of the world.”

Blunt continued, “Our problem is, a as we engage in this fight we continue to act like it is not a fight. People in Paris are marching over the weekend, leaders from all over the world, about standing against terror. At the same time our government is making final arrangements to let known terrorists go. The American people don’t want them here. They want them in Gitmo. The congress wants them in Gitmo. In terms of national security recommendation, the president’s been talking about this for eight years now, since he started running for president. Six years into his presidency, the team he has put in place to advise him hasn’t gotten a message and he wants Gitmo closed no matter what anybody else in the world thinks. That would be shocking.”
