So. If we go easy on the enemy combatants currently residing at Gitmo, their brethren planning their next operation against Americans will let up on the carnage a little bit? Did I understand that correctly?
Fox News, January 22:
The closing of Guantanamo Bay detention center and using the Army Field Manual as the basis for all interrogation is aimed at protecting Americans, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday.
In his first press conference since President Obama was inaugurated, Gibbs said the orders "made America safer, made America stronger."
"The president believes that there's no more important job that he has than to keep the American people safe," Gibbs said at the White House press briefing room.
"The president believes that what he did today will enhance the security of the American people, that it lives up to our values as Americans, and that it will protect the men and women that we have in uniform," he said.
