BREAKING: The Obama administration has permanently closed the office dedicated to shutting down Guantanamo. (New York Times: http://nyti.ms/XNa3Eq)LIKE & SHARE if you’re old enough to remember when this was supposed to happen within the first year of the Obama presidency.

FUCK obama so fucking much right now. ASSHOLE

im so mad. FUCK. FUCK.

dude

Okay, maybe I just don’t understand the finer nuances of this issue, but what the fuck do you all think Obama can do? Yeah, Guantanamo sucks. It never should have been opened. Stipulated. But he already TRIED to shut it down, and Democrats in Congress BLOCKED HIM. He can’t bring the detainees to super max prisons in the US because that option WAS BLOCKED. He can’t try them in federal court in New York because that option WAS BLOCKED. He can’t release them because a) a lot of them ARE major enemies of the US and b) he’d be blocked by Congress, which actually has the power here. And he can’t try them by military tribunals because the SCOTUS already found that constitutionally problematic. So fuck you and your fucking ignorance. This isn’t a case of “Obama is a bad dude.” This is a case of THERE ARE NO OPTIONS. Why waste money on a government office that literally has no function?
But seriously, I’d love to hear a reasonable suggestion of what he CAN do with the detainees. Because I just don’t see a feasible solution that hasn’t been or won’t be blocked by Congress other than “ignore the problem and leave them where they are.”
