Kirsters Baish| President Donald Trump has been following through on his campaign promises of putting an end to Islamic terrorism. He has just signed an executive order to keep maximum security prison Guantanamo Bay open. One terrorist Muslim group is extremely angry about Trump’s decision.
The executive order was signed on January 30, 2018. It explains, “Detention operations at U.S. Naval Station Guantánamo Bay shall continue to be conducted consistent with all applicable United States and international law.”
The maximum security military prison was opened back in 2002 by then President George W. Bush following the 9/11 attacks. The facility is located in a secluded area where the federal government can successfully keep terrorists and be sure that they cannot escape. During the Obama administration, former President Barack Obama insisted that Guantanamo Bay be closed up for good.
Obama failed to close the facility, but still pushed others to try and clear the cases of 65 prisoners in order to shut the facility down. It’s crazy just how different the past administration was from the current one. President Donald Trump is ready to put America first, just as he promised he would during his campaign. He is willing and ready to stop anyone who threatens our country.
CNN reported that during President Trump’s 2018 State of the Union Address, he explained, “I am asking Congress to ensure that in the fight against ISIS and al Qaeda we continue to have all necessary power to detain terrorists wherever we chase them down, wherever we find them. And In many cases for them it will now be Guantánamo bay.”
There is one group, however, that is extremely unhappy with President Trump’s announcement. That group is CAIR. This group calls themselves an “American-Islamic civil rights group,” however they have been found to have radical Islamic ties.
CAIR’s Director of Government Affairs Department Robert S. McCaw released a statement in which he stated, “We condemn President Trump’s order to keep the illegal, exclusively Muslim-populated military prison in Guantanamo Bay open.”
So, what this guy is saying is that President Trump is being unfair because most of the terrorists being held at Guantanamo Bay are Muslim? So, is he saying that President Trump made these Muslims commit acts of terror?
McCaw went on, “Reports of abuse and a lack of due process at Guantánamo have tarnished our nation’s image in the international community and diminished our moral authority to prosecute suspected terrorists in U.S. custody. The accused should be given a fair trial, consistent with our nation’s constitutional values.”
The people who are sent to Guantanamo Bay are sent there for good reasons. They are some of the most dangerous terrorists our world has ever seen. Some of those being held at Guantanamo Bay are conspirators of 9/11. These men longed to see the United States of America crumble. They deserve every moment of their time at Guantanamo Bay. I don’t see how these people claim that life should be “fair” for them. They ruined their chances at a good life when they decided that the lives of others didn’t mean anything. I’d say that Trump is doing a great job if he’s making sickos like these angry.
