The Obama White House is a bit off on its timing these days. We’ve all heard about President Obama saying that ISIS was contained the morning of the Paris attacks.
Let’s add another one to the timing file with the announcement that 5 more are leaving GITMO:
“The Department of Defense announced on Sunday that it had transferred five lower-level Yemeni detainees from the Guantánamo Bay prison in Cuba to the United Arab Emirates. The United States had held each for nearly 14 years as wartime prisoners, and none had been charged with a crime.The transfers reduced the detainee population at the prison to 107. As many as 17 other proposed transfers of lower-level detainees are in the bureaucratic pipeline, an official familiar with internal deliberations said.The resettlement of the Yemeni detainees was the first of its kind to the United Arab Emirates, which had previously taken in just one former Guantánamo detainee, in 2008 — its own citizen.”
Let’s be fair and say that this release was already under way before the Paris attacks. Nevertheless, didn’t it occur to someone that maybe releasing GITMO terrorists may just be the wrong signal hours after Paris?
The Obama White House does not seem capable of dealing with ISIS. They talk tough but seem completely unsure of what to do. They look scared to take the war to the terrorists!
I don’t expect much from President Obama, unless we are attacked or ISIS captures US soldiers. Therefore, this mess will be left to # 45. I just hope that the millions planning to vote for Mrs Clinton understand that she will very likely send ground troops to the region.
Yes, Obama’s mess will have to be cleaned up by # 45!

It had to happen. Donald Trump is now a big hit down in Mexico, or the subject of a play:
“Sons of Trump” is an adaptation of a show called “Brokers,” written by a Spanish comedy troupe, that skewers the lives of the super-rich.
