Barack Obama recently announced his plan to close the Gitmo terrorist detention facility and transfer the jihadists held there to foreign governments and prisons in the United States.

But an unlikely source declared how dangerous the inmates at Gitmo really are.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter said there are some prisoners so dangerous they must be kept under the supervision of the United States.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

“Defense Secretary Ash Carter told reporters on Monday there are detainees at the Guantanamo Bay military prison who are so dangerous that it would not be safe to transfer them outside the care of the United States.

Carter and President Obama have drawn up a plan to move many of the remaining 91 detainees into the custody of foreign governments. Detainees not cleared for transfer overseas—those who Carter describes as too dangerous to go elsewhere—would be moved stateside in an effort to close the detention facility.

Carter made his comment while holding a press briefing at the Pentagon along with Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.”

American Patriot Daily previously reported on Secretary Carter’s jaw-dropping comments that Obama’s scheme to close Gitmo is illegal.

Current U.S. law forbids the transfer of Gitmo prisoners into the United States.

But following the rule of law doesn’t apply to Obama.

He lawlessly granted illegal Executive Amnesty to as many as five million illegal immigrants.

And he is hunting for a similar run around on Congress by closing Gitmo.

However, Secretary Carter was adamant the plan Obama is dreaming up is illegal.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Defense Secretary Ash Carter said during an interview aired Sunday that it is currently illegal to transfer detainees from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to the American homeland.

Carter hopes Congress will change the law to make it legal, however, and told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, who conducted the interview, that he submitted a plan to President Obama to close Guantanamo and move the remaining detainees to a secure facility in the United States.

“I’ve made a proposal for the president, and he has indicated that he’s going to submit that to the Congress,” Carter said.  “Why is that? Because it’s against the law now to establish another detention facility [in the U.S.] so, therefore, we have to get the support of Congress.”

And while transferring terrorists to the U.S. is illegal, handing over committed jihadists to foreign governments is a recipe for disaster.

American Patriot Daily has also reported how one previously released prisoner ended up as the front-man for Al Qaeda and another released terrorist was Bin Laden’s most notorious bomb maker  who will likely return to terrorist activities.

Closing Gitmo threatens our rule of law and national security.

Will Obama heed the words of his Secretary of Defense?
