And here's something to think about...
Not in my backyard
Meanwhile, it seems the DEMOCRATS are forcing Obama to rethink holding trials at Guantanamo Bay! From the New York Times: "...and in a clear rebuke to Mr. Obama, Democratic leaders refused to include $80 million the White House had sought for closing Guantánamo. Senate Democrats also said the administration must provide a plan for relocating more than 200 detainees still held at the prison. The Senate Appropriations Committee advanced its version of the military spending bill Thursday with the $80 million but banned the transfer of detainees to the United States."
Spineless charlatans, these elected officials. While some Dems dodge their responsibilities in this shameful example of passing the buck, hundreds of probably-innocent people continue to languish in prison, without charge and with few human rights extended.
So before we all get up in arms about Obama not closing Guantanamo immediately, let's remember who is stopping him from closing it: his fellow Democrats. Pathetic.
P.S. Don't forget, it's the last weekend at the Antiquites Brocante at Bastille. The brocante is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, with stands brimming with curiosities and charm lining both sides of the Canal St. Martin. Purchase your ticket for eight euros at the main entrance at Place de la Bastille.
