Please Tell Me More About How It Was Obama Who Failed To Close Gitmo

Senator Pat Roberts proves what I've said all along: Congress failed, not Obama.



For six years I've listened to people on all sides of the debate complain because 'Obama failed to shut down Guantanamo" and for six years I've said it was Congress, not Obama. Well, here you go, straight from the almost-certainly-doomed-to-be-former-Senator from Kansas:

The Hill:

A day after Tea Party hero Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) campaigned with him in Wichita, (Sen. Pat Roberts) threatened to wage a marathon talk session similar to the one Cruz held last year to protest the implementation of ObamaCare.

“I stopped him once from trying to send a Gitmo terrorist to Leavenworth. I shall do it again, I shall do it again and if he tries it again I will shut down the Senate,” Roberts said, referring to the military prison located sixty miles east of his campaign headquarters in Topeka where he spoke to campaign volunteers.

Roberts made a similar threat back in 2009, when Obama originally signaled he wanted to relocate detainees to the United States. At the time, the disciplinary barracks at Fort Leavenworth, as well as a maximum-security prison in Obama’s home state of Illinois were being considered to house the prisoners.

Roberts told reporters that he would hold the Senate floor for hours on end if necessary to stop Obama.

Designed by Dutch architects MVRDV, the nearly 312,000 square-foot building features a dazzling, gigantic mural titled Cornucopia by artists Arno Coenen and Iris Roskam.
