President Obama seems to always remain active as the most powerful president of the world. He adores a winning line recently with the Supreme Court repeating his mark health care law and Iran approving to limits on its nuclear program.
It looks like on one side he is facing a dominant win but on the other side his long-lasting goal endures of closing the wartime prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Media sources are saying that Obama government is conscripting a plan to lastly close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay.
Experts are saying that they are racing contrary to the clock to achieve a long-delayed promise by President Obama before his time in office runs out. It seems to have no clear result as the government’s restless determination to shut down the prison is failing again
Ashton B. Carter as defense secretary is still making a decision on any freshly planned deals to transfer separate detainees in his first six months. This delay from him starts a pattern which repeats a pattern last year by his forerunner Chuck Hagel.
Reviewing the facts, under a defense policy bill was approved by the Senate. Now the politicians would deliberate the White House plan and choose whether to ease limits that make it tougher for Obama to transfer prisoners out of the prison at the U.S. naval base in a struggle to close it.
A longtime supporter of closing the prison none other than Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain desires to give the Obama Administration a chance to possibly do so through the National Defense Authorization Act.
The administration was in the final phases of drafting the strategy for Congress. There are presently 116 prisoners left in Guantanamo Bay prison and around 800 men have been imprisoned there since it started holding prisoners over a decade ago.
According to the American Civil Liberties Union, 51 of those men are still being captive even though the government has cleared them for release.
Sen. John McCain as the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and was also a prisoner of Vietnam War proposed making this new route toward the option of closing the Guantanamo Bay facility.
Given the solemn pressures America faces it’s unbelievable to see this government threatening to veto a bill that offers our troops a pay increase, fortifies our cyber security and executes better limits on releasing terrorists.
