Biden Speaks: Obama Clueless On Guantanamo

It seems that all a reporter has to do to find out about the pickle Barack Obama’s is really in over his promise to close the Guantanamo Bay prison is to ask the veep, who was talking to the press at Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo on the final day of his trip to the Balkans.

So will Obama fulfill his vow – announced amid great fanfare in an executive order on day two of his presidency – to close the facility by January 2010? “I think so,” Biden responded, according to Newsweek’s Holly Bailey.

So perhaps he will. Or perhaps not. We’ll see.

Biden continued: “But, look, what the president said is that this is going to be hard. It’s like opening Pandora’s Box. We don’t know what’s inside the box.”

He also said that “to the best of my knowledge” the number of prisoners “who are a real danger who are not able to returned or tried” has “not been established” by the Obama administration.

So he basically just confirmed his predecessor Dick Cheney’s analysis that the decision was taken “with little deliberation, and no plan”.

Bahahahahaha. There you have it folks, from the horse’s ass. I mean, from the horse’s mouth. Joe — can I call ya Joe? — Biden says the Obama administration doesn’t have a clue what it’s doing on the most prominent national security issue of the day. The White House has no idea where to put its inmates. The White House made a hasty decision. The White House is more confused on enhanced interrogation than Pelosi.

God Bless, ya, Joe, and Gospeed.
