  1. White House to Pentagon: Find cheaper way to shutter Guantanamo prisonRead the original story

    Dec 2, 2015 | Stars and Stripes

    The White House has rejected the Pentagon's initial $500 million plan to shutter Guantanamo Bay prison as too costly, ordering military officials to find a cheaper way to move dozens of detainees to the U.S., according to three government officials familiar with the plan. The Pentagon's "internal review plan" estimated it would cost more than half a billion dollars to set up and begin operating separate holding facilities for about 90 or fewer detainees in areas next to or adjacent with existing federal prisons in the U.S., said the officials, who were not authorized to speak publicly about the plan.

    The recent editorial in the Canon City Record and other media sources cited objections to prisoners from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, relocating to Florence is many years too late and missed the broader public interest issue. Since this is not a popularity contest, the local community may have won a temporary victory in Washington, D.C. to not relocate Guantanamo Bay prisoners to the mainland, including the Florence prison, but the problem is not solved and that battle is far from over.

    While having a collective hissy fit over President Obama's decision to release more prisoners from our prison at Guantanamo Bay, the yappers on Fox's Cashin' In did their best to pretend that there's no such thing as blowback from the prison's existence. They were also screaming to the hills about the timing of the closing, because God knows we can't be releasing or moving any of these prisoners we refuse to charge with anything right after there was a terrorist attack in Paris.
