Gitmo backlash plagues Obama

Thomas Lifson
House Democrats, facing the voters next year, understand how Obama's decide first, plan later closing of Gitmo puts America at risk. Even though some of his supporters think that having said he will close is enough, the inconvenient truth is that these guys are going to end up in the United States, some of them on the streets and on welfare.

House Republicans get it, and have produced this video.




I think that as far as it goes, it is fine. But it needs to be followed by video featuring Obama's face promising to close Gitmo, and pointing out that none of the allies he promised to charm into taking Gitmo prisoners are buying.
