This was a beautiful thing…
A federal government watchdog recently concluded the Obama administration broke the law when they released five top Taliban terrorists from Guantanamo Bay Prison without notifying Congress before their release.
Today a senate panel held a session on the Obama Administration’s Gitmo policy. Brian McKeon, the Principal Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, admitted that Attorney General Holder gave approval to the administration for this questionable and dangerous action because of the safety risk to Sgt. Bergdahl.

McKeon also argued before the senate panel that “it was no coincidence” that the recent ISIS videos show the victims in orange jumpsuits like those worn by Gitmo detainees.
That’s when freshman Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) let him have it.
Senator Cotton: How many detainees were at Guantanamo Bay on September 11, 2001?
Brian McKeon: Zero
Senator Cotton: How many were there in October of 2000 when Al-Qaeda bombed the US Cole?
Brian McKeon: Zero.
Senator Cotton: Islamic terrorists don’t need an excuse to attack the United States. They don’t attack us for what they (we) do. They attack us for who we are.
