President Obama ordered Congress to close Guantanamo Bay prison or face a slashed military budget via the National Defense Authorization Act.
Such is the way things work with a leftist, lame duck president who fights more for his base than he does for his country.
With the early stages of World War III underway, Obama — as usual — plays politics.
As White House spokesman Josh Earnest explained, the defense funding bill would be vetoed “principally because of the irresponsible way that it funds our national defense priorities, but also because of the efforts to prevent the closure [of] the prison at Guantanamo Bay.”
The NDAA bill has been passed for five decades.
Obama, however, wants Gitmo closed because he thinks it inflames terrorist opinion regarding the United States. Also, Cuba has demanded the U.S. return Gitmo, located on Fidel Castro’s island.
Why It’s the Perfect Time to Cut Military Spending!
China sends military “advisors”, navy ships and troops to Syria.
Iran on the brink of nuclear weapons.
War in Yemen between Sunni and Shi’a forces.
Russia continues to invade Ukraine.
Russia seized the Crimea last winter.
China has claimed almost all of the South China Sea and has built man-made islands to support territorial defense.
South and North Korean relations are tense.
Saudi Arabia and Iran are quietly moving toward a conflict.
Iran via Hamas and Hezbollah continues to expand in Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria.
