Speaking for over an hour at a business meeting in Pennsylvania, Former President George W. Bush attacked plans to close the Guantanamo Bay prison.
“The way I decided to address the problem was twofold: One, use every technique and tool within the law to bring terrorists to justice before they strike again,” Said Mr. Bush
Bush asserted he would not directly criticize President Obama.
“I told you I’m not going to criticize my successor. I’ll just tell you that there are people at Gitmo that will kill American people at a drop of a hat and I don’t believe that — persuasion isn’t going to work. Therapy isn’t going to cause terrorists to change their mind,” he continued.
Mr. Bush also spoke out against Obama’s health care and economic agenda.
“There are a lot of ways to remedy the situation without nationalizing health care. I worry about encouraging the government to replace the private sector when it comes to providing insurance for health care.”
