Time and time again, President Barack Obama has tried to sell his incomplete plan to close Guantanamo Bay and transfer terrorist detainees to American soil. And repeatedly, Speaker Ryan and the Republican-led Congress have rebuffed him, with a pesky reminder that "it is against the law." Still, this president has a limited appreciation of the constitutional role of Congress, so perhaps he'll heed the advice of a fellow Democratic president (even a pretend one) more closely.
1. When President Obama claims his plan to close Gitmo is not dangerous . . .
2. When President Obama claims his plan to close Gitmo is bipartisan . . .
3. When President Obama claims his plan to close Gitmo has a chance . . .
President Underwood is right on this one. President Obama should join him—and the majority of Congress—in closing the door on any plan that would move terrorist detainees to American soil.
