I don't know it's name, but it is a law that states that Congress must be notified at least 30 days in advance of any release of prisoners from Gitmo (and of course they were not notified).

If President Obama signed it into law although not agreeing with it, then why on earth did he sign it into law? Is everything a game for this Constitutional scholar?

Why???? Our gov. is starting to look like Calvin ball. Selective enforcement of laws for the convenience of the ruling class.

As mentioned by Larry they have to notify Congress. They just blatantly ignored it.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/nat ... story.html

Hagel informed members of Congress on Saturday about the prisoner swap deal. The administration is required by law to notify Congress about its intention to release Guantanamo detainees 30 days in advance.

“Due to a near-term opportunity to save Sergeant Bergdahl’s life, we moved as quickly as possible,” a senior administration official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to explain the timing of the congressional notification. “The administration determined that given these unique and exigent circumstances, such a transfer should go forward notwithstanding the notice requirement” in the law.



Reading another article it was just recently that this thirty day advance notice went into effect and actually loosened previous requirements.

When will the people have had enough? They do what they want because the press does not report that anything wrong was done and the normal voter doesn't know any better. Republicans and Independents, I mean educated voters don't out weigh the uneducated ones. :o :mad:

How many new prisoners will they take now that we are negotiating with them. That soldier left base on his own against orders. People were hurt looking for him. Now we are giving up 5 terrorists for him. So if any of the released terrorists kills an American will O accept responsibility? This administration is a joke.

I'll often check out MSNBC when these big stories hit. Even "tingle up my leg" didn't appear to be onboard for this one. One of the guests brought up Reagan and Iran Contra and he appeared to be visibly angry commenting Reagan got hammered for it.

Obama has really put himself out on a limb with this one, the repercussions may not be felt long after he's left the Presidency. If even one of these guys is involved in major attack in the future his legacy is going to be absolute toast.

Sorry, but there are too many stupid ones out there that are more worried about future pot legislation than this. They just don't care.
