Senator Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) was not shy about sharing how he felt about Barack Obama’s plan to close Guantanamo Bay, another chapter of Obama’s legacy, by transporting somewhere between 30 and 60 of the 91 remaining Islamic terrorists to prisons on American soil.

Before Americans can blink an eye, all 91 Islamic terrorists will have been transferred to prisons on U.S. soil where they will be lauded as heroes thus opening the door that would boost the radicalization of inmates throughout our prison system.
END OF SIDEBAR

What is not a lie is that the release/transfer of Gitmo jihadist into the American prison systems is THE RECRUITING TOOL.
