Maggie Hassan has been largely silent on whether she sides with President Obama and Hillary Clinton on closing Guantanamo Bay, saying only that she “would consider” closing it.
But following recent reports that a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner, Ibrahim al-Qosi, has joined with al Qaeda, Hassan hasn’t changed her tune. In fact, she’s still silent.
Meanwhile, Kelly Ayotte penned a letter to President Obama stating, “The responsibility for al-Qosi’s return to terrorism falls squarely on your administration.”
Following recent terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, much of our nation’s attention and dialogue has been focused on national security and how to keep our country safe from future attacks.
But not Maggie Hassan.
Instead, Hassan refuses to tell voters whether she supports President Obama’s plan to close Guantanamo Bay and transfer prisoners to American soil or other countries.
