White House asked if countries are PAID to take Gitmo prisoners; answer speaks VOLUMES

A spokesman for the president was recently asked whether or not the White House pays third-party countries to take detainees released from the facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

How he answered the question speaks volumes about the ineptness of the federal government when it comes to handling terrorism.

The Washington Examiner reports, President Obama’s spokesman on Friday wouldn’t confirm whether the U.S. pays third-party countries to take detainees released from the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Experts have speculated that Washington has to pay handsomely to convince other nations to accept and detain the prisoners.

Josh Earnest, Obama’s press secretary, sidestepped the question, which has been asked more frequently as Obama looks to unload as many cleared terrorist suspects as he can to get closer to his goal of closing the facility.

Earnest would only concede that there are “extensive diplomatic discussions” ahead of transfers such as the one earlier this month that saw the United Arab Emirates accept 15 former Guantanamo Bay inmates. But he wouldn’t answer questions about whether the government is paying these countries as part of the deal.

Isn’t it hilarious that the president often slams his own country for not being “tolerant” and “accepting” enough, yet he has to pay other nations to take in these savage terrorists?

You’d also think these professional mouthpieces would know that not answering a question is the same thing as answering it with a big, fat “yes.”
