Discussing the renewed push by liberals to close Guantanamo Bay and transfer the terrorists it holds to US soil, Britain’s Daily Mirror says this:
President Barack Obama ordered the closing of the Guantanamo detention centre when he took office in 2009, but that was blocked by a Republican-led bill that cut off funding to move the detainees to the US.
In 2009, Democrats controlled the Senate 58-42 and the vote to block funding was 90-6. That took me two seconds to dig up on the Internet. Just saying.
