President Obama intends to release a bunch of people from GTMO. Some of the people he has already released have gone back to the battlefield to try to kill Americans again. So Ted Cruz is offering up a really commonsensical piece of legislation — declassify the histories of those Obama is releasing from GTMO.
We might as well see the character of those Obama is releasing and learn why they were detained in the first place. Naturally, Democrats and the President consider it a political stunt to show us the types of people Barack Obama is letting out of GTMO. They want us all to know about Bradley Manning, but the terrorists in GTMO who want to kill us? No, they’d prefer we not now know.
