Democrats Redefine ‘Victory’ As Closing Gitmo

• Views: 1,501

The Surrender Party is now preparing to close the Guantanamo Bay prison by doing what they do best—cutting its funding.

At least, that’s what they do best when the funding is for defense of the US.

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democrats want to cut President Bush’s budget for Guantanamo Bay prison in half, beating the administration to the punch in shutting down the facility for terror detainees. …

With no timetable announced by Bush, Congress is moving ahead on its own. In July, the House Appropriations Committee is expected to propose funding only half of Guantanamo’s budget in the military’s annual spending bill.

While a precise figure of how much would be cut was not immediately available, the prison’s annual operation budget is about $125 million a year.

And in the Orwellian Inversion of the Day, Democrats would call this a “victory.”

Acting before Bush is ready would enable Democrats to claim victory in closing the prison.

“What I’m most concerned about is that we uphold a rule of law and not give our enemies a compelling talking point that we are not true to our principles,” said Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va. “As long as we detain people indefinitely without charging them, it’s a potent weapon in the propaganda war against this country. And that’s what Guantanamo has become.”

Enemies? That’s the first indication ever that Jim Moran (Moonbat-Va.) believes we actually have enemies other than Republicans. Must have been a slip.
