State Dept. official says GITMO orange jumpsuits make Islamic State do bad things

In the litany of boneheaded statements coming from the Obama administration (and of course from our Dear Leader himself), this one has to rank pretty high.

Last week, during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing regarding GIMTO, Brian McKeon, the principal deputy undersecretary of defense for policy said “It is no coincidence that the recent ISIS videos showing the barbaric burning of a Jordanian pilot and the savage execution of a Japanese hostage each showed the victim clothed in an orange jumpsuit, believed by many to be the symbol of the Guantanamo detention facility,” as reported by Mediaite.com.

Yep, that makes perfect sense. So that’s why they hate us! Why didn’t we think of this sooner?

Islamic State is just angry about those orange jumpsuits at GITMO, and so makes a point of savagely killing people wearing orange. If there were no GITMO, and no orange jumpsuits, there’d by no killing by Islamic State, right?

Well, except for this killing.

beheading

And this killing.

child_rifles

And this killing.

isis_executions

But yep, if we just closed GITMO, got rid of the orange jumpsuits, and set free all the rest of those captured Islamists, all the violence would end.

No wonder Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize!

I’d like to see Obama and Holder in those black and white striped prison clothing with the big prisoner number on the back.

Just when one did not think the obama adinistration could be any ore idiotic, they prove one wrong.

The orange jumpsuit statement is a shortcut to thinking. Would the Obama regime be happier if these hostages were wearing robes or jumpsuits as they were beheaded or burned to death? The comment is also a cheap political stunt – the Left’s eternal and unyielding condemnation of the Guantanamo facility. What exactly is their beef again? If it has to do with the rule of law (i.e. convict the detainees of something or let them go, etc.) then why do they constantly break/fail to enforce laws they don’t like on American soil while creating laws via executive fiat notwithstanding separate… Read more »

actually, by treaty, any base or american instalation is considered american soil. Just like our consulates. People go to embassys for safety. And Military bases.

The Cuban-American treaty of 1903 specifies that the United States is leasing the soil upon which the naval station is located (however open-ended the terms of the lease may be). The lease stipulates that the United States “shall exercise complete jurisdiction and control”, which comports in general with your description – up to the point of the base being considered American soil. In the treaty the United States stipulates to “the continuance of the ultimate sovereignty of the Republic of Cuba” as it concerns the land upon which the naval station is located.

I yield to your data. It sounds more credible than my old memory. I know that portion of land is not “property ” as US land in that sense. But America does exert control and institutes american law on that portion land. So People seeking sanctuary cannot be removed by the local government. Thanks for your input.

The lengths to which this WH goes to excuse and validate terrorist behavior is astounding.

Brian

I agree Lori K, but what makes it even worse is that they make these idiotic statements apparently on the assumption that the entire American population is as mindless, impressionable and ignorant as their voter base!

Well, he was voted into office twice. Clearly, the majority of the population IS mindless, impressionable, and ignorant.

They ought to put them in PINK jumpsuits like Sherrif Joe in AZ.

We should find a way to elect Sheriff Joe to warden whatever prison Holder and Obama end up in.

Let’s just keep fussing over the symbol of the orange jumpsuit as prison garb and ignore the other items like beheadings, burning alive, killing babies and young children, etc.

Gunny D

LOL I laugh because of the stupidity that comes from these mooks. Maybe they should have made them wear pink jump suits like Sheriff Joe uses at his jail. It’s a friendlier, softer approach. That might have made Daesh a more human and caring terrorist group and maybe they would have tickled people to death instead….

Wow….where were these orange jumpsuit wearing excuses when they bombed us on 9/11 or the first World Trade Center bombing, or the USS Cole or bombings of our embassies in Africa, etc. etc.?? I don’t recall us having Gitmo detainees when these attacks happened. This is all just another load of total garbage coming out of this inept, terrorist sympathizing administration.

I read your asinine remarks and finally had enough of your stupidity. FACT: Obama was raised under the tutelage of Marxist-communists named His OWN mother, step father, Bill Ayers, plus others. To refute that shows you are retarded and out of touch with reality. FACT: obama the idiot is a Muslim, not just because others watch everything he does to help Islam, but from words from his own mouth. Sept 13, 2013, while attending a Muslim luncheon, he replied and I quote: “I have vowed to do everything I can to promote Islam and the doctrines of Muhammad, because I… Read more »

Yet again we see total stupidity on the part of Obama’s cadre of yes men. Which ever way you look at it ISIS are murders pure and simple. And as long as they are allowed to continue to expand they are a threat not just to the Middle East but to the whole world. You do tend to wonder if Obama does have a hidden agenda and really want to destroy the USA via the back door.

The orange uniforms should be replaced; with pink suits and pictures of hogs on them. How should we care about terrorists who will NEVER be rehabilitated, and when turned loose, go back to killing innocent people?
They should eat no better than the poor people on our streets. Perhaps we should feed them the swill Michelle can’t get school students to eat.
End any outside communication and take away the television. Let them exercise the same way prison inmates do. After all, why should we reward men for trying to destroy America??

Yes, that really is a strange way of pampering prisoners that commit such horrible crimes. Really terrifies them with that harsh punishment, doesnt it?

I agree with Cotton!! Every bed in GITMO should be filled. They should be on lockdown 23/7 no $80 million soccer field, NOTHING!!! They should be treated like the ignorant savages they are and no better. And TRY the bastards in military tribunals and execute them, FGS what is taking so long???
