This has to be a diversion from Obama’s shockingly stupid proposal to find cost savings by forcing wounded vets to use private medical insurance for their treatment.
Pundit Review has the exclusive transcript from Team Obama’s strategy session,
Advisor 1: “What can we do to get this stupid veterans benefits story out of the news? These people are so ungrateful, I mean we are talking real cost savings here, way more than we gave those AIG guys.”
Advisor 2: ‘How about if we tell our Euro friends that we will not only close GITMO for no good reason, but we will release them into the general population in the US”
Advisor 1: “Get me Geithner on the phone. This might be the solution to the foreclosure problem. How many GITMO terrorists are we talking about.”
Advisor 2: “Boss, we’d only send them to Red States, right.”
Advisor 1: “Of course, don’t you think we know what we’re doing?”
European justice ministers met with Mr. Holder earlier this week and pressed for details on how many Guantanamo prisoners the U.S. planned to release domestically, as part of any agreement for allies to accept detainees. Mr. Holder said U.S. officials would work to respond to the questions European officials have over U.S. Guantanamo plans.
For “people who can be released there are a variety of options that we have and among them is the possibility is that we would release them into this country,” Mr. Holder said. “That process is ongoing and we’ve not made any determinations or made any requests of anybody at this point.”
