Sessions Wants to Keep GITMO Open

Sessions Wants to Keep GITMO Open

President Donald Trump vowed on the campaign trail that he would end President Barack Obama’s attempts to close Guantanamo Bay and instead use the prison camp for terrorists and “bad dudes.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions appeared to share Trump’s opinion on the prison during an interview he gave Thursday evening with The Hugh Hewitt Show.

“I believe it’s a … very fine place for holding these kind of dangerous criminals. We’ve spent a lot of money fixing it up. And I’m inclined to the view that it remains a perfectly acceptable place,” Sessions stated.

During the interview, Sessions explained that it was time for the United States to start using Guantanamo Bay to hold prisoners of war because that made more sense than bringing them into the United States for a trial.

“In general, I don’t think we’re better off bringing these people to federal court in New York and trying them in federal court where they get discovery rights to find out our intelligence, and get court-appointed lawyers and things of that nature,” Sessions explained.

Asked specifically if he would advise Trump to hold unlawful combatants, Sessions was unequivocal.

“Yes. Oh, there’s plenty of space. We are well equipped for it. It’s a perfect place for it,” he said. “Eventually, this will be decided by the military rather than the Justice Department. But I see no legal problem whatsoever with doing that.

Gitmo exists to harbor some of the worst terrorists and criminals this world has ever seen. Instead of realizing that, Obama simply released all these mass murderers back into the world where a number of them have been found (or killed) on the battlefields in the Middle East.

Under the Trump administration, we will finally will get back to using the prison facility to house terrorists and those who will do us harm. No longer will we have a president who is more concerned about looking good than getting actual results.
