By B. Christopher Agee. According to South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott, Barack Obama’s disastrous foreign policy platform is being punctuated with an act that could be especially dangerous for American citizens.
In an effort to keep a campaign promise, Obama recently confirmed his plans to shutter the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba, which has housed terror suspects in the years since 9/11.
Instead of detaining suspects in that remote location, Scott explained that the current administration is planning to move these enemy fighters to facilities within the U.S.
“The president’s foreign policy has been an absolute failure,” he said, “and his willingness to close Guantanamo Bay and send the world’s worst enemy combatants to a location near some of us is simply the icing on a disastrous cake.”
His warning was also a call to action, specifically for voters to ensure Hillary Clinton does not become Obama’s successor . . .
Detailing what he believes are Obama’s failures in nations across the Middle East and beyond, he concluded that the situation would only be made worse by bringing our enemies into our nation.

Will Cuba Take Over Guantanamo Bay? Military Lawmakers Claim Obama Will Give Base To Castro-Led Regime
By Christopher Harress. The top military lawmaker in the House of Representatives is calling for assurances from President Barack Obama that Guantanamo Bay won’t be handed over to Cuba as part of a normalization package between the U.S. and the Raul Castro-led country. Rep. Mac Thornberry R-Texas, chairmen of the House Armed Services Committee, said Obama could make the announcement during a visit to the country later this month.
Thornberry sent letters dated Feb. 29 to Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, Secretary of State John Kerry and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, expressing concern “the administration may be pursuing secret negotiations over the future of Naval Station Guantanamo Bay in Cuba as it has acknowledged it did in the pursuit of normalized relations with Havana,” the Hill reported Wednesday. “It provides an ideal location from which to service, stage, and project U.S. military forces, secure the air and maritime approaches to the United States, undertake counternarcotics efforts and provide disaster relief.”
It was unclear from Thornberry’s letter if his concerns about Cuba taking over the prison included the 91 prisoners remaining at the base. The future of those still at the controversial prison, some of whom have been there since the detention facility opened in 2002, has been a point of contention between the Republicans and Democrats since Obama announced he would close it on his third day in office in January 2009.
