White House Says It’s “Energetically” Working To Release Remaining Gitmo Terrorists

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama’s national security team is pushing forward on moving detainees held at Guantanamo Bay to other countries amid outrage in Congress at the recent transfer of five Taliban prisoners in exchange for captive Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

While there aren’t any “imminent transfer announcement in the works,” the team assigned to moving detainees is “energetically working this issue every day from Washington, foreign capitals, and places in between,” according to National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden.

Obama last met with his Guantanamo special envoys in November. It’s been a longstanding goal of Obama’s to close the detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, which requires moving prisoners detained there to other facilities.

United States law currently does not allow Guantanamo detainees to be moved to the U.S., a provision that has impeded the administration’s efforts to close the prison, since detainees cannot be tried in civilian courts or moved to American prisons.

And we're energetically working to clean out the White House! It has become a cesspool.

As long as they say they'll be good boys it'll be ok to release them. After all, they wouldn't lie.
