Guantanamo will get $195.7 million in renovations and new construction

quote:

Four years after Obama promised to close it, Guantanamo Bay military prison will get $195.7 million in renovations and new construction


-Pentagon request includes $49 million for new jail for 'special' detainees
-White House shut office charged with closing controversial US prison
-Crumbling structures make it a 'money pit,' says former military prosecutor

President Barack Obama famously promised in early 2009 to close the US military's detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba within 12 months. But new Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is instead considering a proposal from his top commanders to spend $195.7 million renovating it and erecting a new prison building.

The new construction would include $49 million to house high-value targets like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind behind the 9/11 terror attacks, whose initial detention and interrogation was handled by the Central Intelligence Agency.

The New York Times reported that it would likely replace Camp 7, the oft-rumored but never acknowledged installation for those 'special' detainees.

Let's not let Congress off the hook for this one.

Nobody wanted these guys imprisoned in their districts, as if these semi-literate morons actually stood a snowball's chance in hell of escaping Supermax.

Not even the Progressives can defend this one.

This should make them realize that he's just another politician saying what needs to be said to get elected.

We know Obama doesn't but the sad thing is his followers don't care either. Party before their country and all.

He wasn't the one that passed a law saying the prisoners couldn't be housed or even tried in the United States.

Did you want him to release everybody?
