America and Ghana Political Paradigm Shift is in danger.
America Released Detainees For Ghana - WHY?
Report reaching GHANASKY.COM and ACCRA24.COM indicated that
779 prisoners have been held at Guantánamo since the prison opened on January 11, 2002 by ex-President George W. Bush.
Of those 779, 664 have been released or transferred, one was transferred to the U.S. to be tried, and nine have died.
America Released Detainees, Gitmo, murderers etc because of many factors according to President Barack Obama. Barack Hussein Obama II is an American politician currently serving as the 44th President of the United States, the first African American to hold the office. Obama decided to do things before his term of office expire. But why GHANA choose to accommodate them?
Report reaching ACCRA24.COM and GHANASKY.COM , Ghanaians demand the President to release prisoners in Ghana if...?? "President Mahama must release rapists and armed robbers from prison on humanitarian grounds, they too are humans just like us".
As 2016 began, two Yemenis were released, and given new homes in Ghana, and it was widely reported that 15 other releases are in the pipeline.
Obama has whittled down the number of detainees from 241 to 107 during his time at the White House, and he said, he expected that number to get below 100 by early this year 2016. Prez. Obama's effort is to clear out the prison.
Guantanamo was established under President George W. Bush as a place to hold alleged terrorists, or enemy combatants, rather than treating them as conventional prisoners of war.
The crying of some group of lawyers, journalists, retired military personnel and concerned citizens seeking to close the "war on terror" prison at Guantánamo Bay, where 93 men are still held, even though 34 of them have been cleared for release.
By the analyst of ACCRA24.COM, as President Obama's second and final term in office reaches its final year, and his legacy is being written, he needs to make good the promise to close Guantánamo that he made seven years ago, on his second day in office in January 2009. While the prison remains open, it continues to undermine America's values and national security.
