♫ GIIIIT-MO! Is a very, very, very fine place! With detainees in the yard, life there used to be so ha-a-ard. ♫
Not anymore, according to Trump’s new Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who actually seriously called it “a very fine place.”
In an interview with right-wing blowhard Hugh Hewitt on Thursday, Sessions recounted the impression he’s gotten from visits he’s made to the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba:
I’ve been there a number of times as a senator, and it’s just a very fine place for holding these kind of dangerous criminals. We’ve spent a lot of money fixing it up. And I’m inclined to the view that it remains a perfectly acceptable place.
Hewitt asked Sessions to weigh in on the legality of holding captured ISIS fighters at the facility, should the Trump administration ever manage to capture some, since ISIS is not expressly named in the authorization of military force being used to conduct the indefinite “War on Terror.” The Attorney General concluded that there should be no legal setbacks:
There’s plenty of space. We are well equipped for it. It’s a perfect place for it…[I] see no legal problem whatsoever with doing that.
It sounds like Jeff’s just about done with the treehouse, and is about to get to work on the swingset.
Gitmo has been back in the news after the Failed Mail-Order Meat Salesman falsely attributed to President Obama the release of a gaggle of prisoners who have since rejoined their fight, in a tweet that has yet to be deleted:
122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!
