If Not, Why Have They Not Said So?

    Raleigh, N.C.     Today, President Obama announced another plan to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

    Most disturbing, Obama would transfer its terrorist detainees to undisclosed facilities in the United States. This plan drew swift rebuke from U.S. Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, as well as Governor Pat McCrory, who said he opposes "any effort to move Guantanamo detainees to the states," urging other leaders to follow suit and oppose this plan. Senator Burr even introduced legislation yesterday to stop President Obama from moving forward with his plan without Congressional approval.

    Where do Attorney General Roy Cooper, North Carolina's chief law enforcement officer, and other Democrats running for office stand on transferring terrorists to prison facilities in the United States, and possibly North Carolina?

    "The threat from ISIS is real and growing more severe thanks to the failed Clinton-Obama foreign policy," said Dallas Woodhouse, NCGOP Executive Director. "Closing Guantanamo won't make this country safer. North Carolinians deserve to know if the Democrats running for higher office in the state agree with President Obama's decision to double down on his plan to close Guantanamo Bay, release battle-hardened terrorists back to the field, and transfer terrorist combatants to prisons in the states."

    This issue is particularly concerning due to the large number of federally controlled military installations, as well as other federal facilities in the Carolinas.
