We all know that Barack Obama has spent his life bashing and hating the United States military. But this announcement takes it to a new level!
The Obama White House just said they will veto ANY defense authorization bill from Congress unless Guantanamo Bay in Cuba is shut down. That is where the world’s worst terrorists are currently sitting behind bars.
It wasn’t long ago when Obama released high-level Taliban fighters illegally, in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl. Now, Obama is making it clear that he wants the rest of the prisoners out of Cuba:
On Monday, the Obama administration announced that President Obama would veto a defense authorization bill if it did not close down Guantanamo Bay. White House press secretary Josh Earnest explained that the House 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.” He added that Democrats would sustain Obama’s veto, and defense authorization would die.
Obama’s strong stand on Gitmo underscores two vital points. First, President Obama does not fear defunding America’s national security. Second, Obama does not fear Republicans in Congress.
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has been authorized for five decades running. The current NDAA fully funds the military through a workaround measure, thanks to President Obama’s demands that a huge chunk of sequestration cuts come from defense funding. Now Democrats complain that the workaround measure isn’t good enough: Republicans should bust open the bank again.
This means the Obama White House is willing to slash the military and make a decision that will result in more American deaths… Just to shut down a prison that liberals have hated since the Bush administration.
