Given the firestorm currently underway regarding the five spontaneous released Guantanamo Bay (Gitmo) detainees for the American deserter who denounced his citizenship, many Americans have had just about enough of Obama’s antics. Most recently, the GOP has threatened Obama saying that if he were to release even one more Gitmo detainee without going through proper channels, they would certainly impeach him.
The words came from South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham who recently expressed his frustration he shares with so many other Americans at this time. He did say that although he was able to pull the unilateral release of the five terrorists, that he wouldn’t be able to do the same without severe consequences.
According to Graham:
“It’s going to be impossible for them to flow prisoners out of Gitmo now without a huge backlash. There will be people on our side calling for his impeachment if he did that.”
His statement comes in the midst of discussions regarding yet another Gitmo detainee that has been in American custody for over 12 years. Graham also “inserted language into a pending defense authorization bill,” that would also make Obama legally obligated to go through Congress and get a unanimous vote before closing the Cuban detention center.
