McConnell Credits Cheney for Obama Reversals
By | May 18, 2022 12:13 pm

Not everybody is annoyed by Vice President Dick Cheney’s media blitz.  On Fox News Sunday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) gave Cheney the credit for causing President Obama to reverse on some of his national security policies:   

I think the administration has responded to the critique of the vice president and others that it…might be drifting off in the wrong direction on national security issues.

McConnell then took the opportunity to urge the President to reconsider closing Guantanamo Bay, an action he took during his first day of office.  On the issue of bringing detainees into the United States, McConnell said:

There’s no reason in the world to bring these people to the United States.  I don’t think there’s a community in America that’s going to be interested in taking them.

To our knowledge, the only Congressional representative to declare his willingness to accept former Guantanamo Bay detainees (and stick to it) is Rep. James Moran (D-Va.).

In related news, Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) has reversed his position on Guantanamo Bay and its closure.
