Logic Puzzle – Put these Events in Order

Posted by madjillmom on February 24, 2009

I remember some of my school busy work. Sometimes you were given a worksheet and told to put the events in the proper order.  Did Pres. Obama and his cabinet have the same kind of worksheets.

Put these events in a logical order:

  • Pres. Obama announces he will close Guantanamo – campaign promise fulfilled
  • Drop charges against al-Nashiri, one of the masterminds of the USS Cole bombing
  • Meet with the Families of the Cole and some 9/11 families  and assures them administration will review all detainees files before deciding what to do about closing Guantanamo
  • Put out report that Guantanamo is up to Geneva Convention standards
  • Release Binyam Mohamed to UK – no real explanation given, was his file reviewed?
  • Announce Bagram detainees have no constitutional rights – same as Guantanamo detainees
  • Send AG Eric Holder to Guantanamo – no press allowed – to check on the situation

It seems to me that the Obama adminsitration shoots first, then asks question later.  Or rather annouces policy, then studies the situation.  Wasn’t this the charge always leveled against Pres. Bush. 

Who in the Obama administration/transition team went to Guantanamo prior to AG Eric Holder’s visit?   Why was no press allowed on the Holder trip?  Would they have asked him questions about his coward remark?

I do not think that anyone can put the events in order because the proper thoughtful order would eliminate the first event.  Study the issue first than decide what to do about it.  That is what I would tell my kids.
