In the final days of his presidency, Barack Obama is taking a hard stance in favor of the detainees at Guantanamo Bay. He is looking to release as many as possible with less than 2 weeks remaining in his Administration.
Just one day after the Pentagon announced four will be sent from Guantanamo Bay to Saudi Arabia, the Obama Administration is letting another 18 leave its custody. The former Gitmo warden previously stated President Obama’s releases have put Americans in harm’s way.
Donald Trump has been very clear that he will helm a very different course of action against radical Islamic terrorists and Guantanamo detainees. President Obama appears to be taking action as quickly as he can to get as many of them out before Trump takes over.
Trump even issued a warning about the releases three days ago!
There should be no further releases from Gitmo. These are extremely dangerous people and should not be allowed back onto the battlefield.

In the video below, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest spoke about Obama’s decision to buck Trump and release these detainees.
Unbelievable! Obama doesn’t care about our safety and security. He is rushing to let as many of these dangerous criminals and terrorists go free as possible. Inauguration Day can’t come soon enough!
Share this if you want these detainees to stay at Guantanamo!
