The Democrats in Washington don’t want to talk about Obama’s Gitmo release policies.

But you do have a voice.

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), a Senior Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, has posted a video and petition opposing the transfers of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to the United States. He’s also sponsoring an amendment, S.Amdt.1559, to the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2010 (S.1390), which prohibits the transfer of detainees from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to any facility in the United States. From Sen. Inhofe’s office:

“By more than a 3 to 1 margin, Americans are opposed to detainees being transferred to their home states. And to date, the views of the American people have not changed,” Inhofe said. “Regardless, the administration is committed to fulfilling its political campaign promise to close GITMO, even though President Obama has yet to visit the facility for himself.

“Right now we have an opportunity to stop the President from bringing terrorists to American soil. My amendment will do just that, but I need you to weigh in. By signing this petition, you are telling the Senate and the President that it is unacceptable to house terrorists in your home states. I will make sure that my Senate Colleagues see these petitions and that they are aware of your opposition before they vote on this very important legislation.”

Watch:

Sign the petition here.
