• Feinstein Has No Idea How Obama Plans on Keeping Tabs on the Gitmo 5


    Say what you want about this California Democrat, but when it comes to matters of national security, Dianne Feinstein most often tells it like it is. She chairs the Senate Intelligence Commitee, which supposedly exists in order to be briefed on matters just like the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner trade. Yet, in this case, she was not. And asked by Bob Schieffer of CBS how America can be sure we’re safe from the threat of the Gitmo Five upon their unilateral release by Barack Obama, Feinstein made it quite clear that she hasn’t got the faintest idea.

    There is no house arrest,” she said, referring to how these particular terrorists could possibly be monitored and/or put on probation if need be. “We’ll see,” she said in response to John Kerry’s insistence that they’ll be under a watchful eye.

    Does that make you feel confident? Yeah, me neither. If I were Dianne Feinstein, I’d be screaming at this administration like a bull in a china shop. She’s probably already doing that on the d/l. You can’t blame her for being skeptical here, especially after being kept in the dark both before the decision to make the trade, and after.

    What’s truly amazing is the entire Obama administration’s naive belief that the Gitmo Five won’t pose ANY sort of threat to America. Aside from the terrorist activities that landed them in Guantanamo Bay in the first place, I would imagine that anyone who’s been held captive for years would have a particular grudge or vendetta against their captors. In this case, their hatred of the United States has got to be amplified as a result of us locking them up for so long. It’s like releasing rapists from prison and providing them with the home addresses of the victims who testified against them. Yeah, that’s exactly what it is. I sure hope the Gitmo guards have anonymous identities.

    Sorry, Barry, but in this case, we should have kept them in there…and thrown away the key.
