Despite promising to solve the coronavirus pandemic facing our nation, President Joe Biden’s cabinet issued an order to vaccinate the 40 detainees held at the notorious Cuban detention site Guantanamo Bay. Luckily, the Pentagon announced they would halt any efforts to offer the vaccine to terrorists before American citizens.
“No Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated,” Defense Department Press Secretary John Kirby tweeted. “We’re pausing the plan to move forward, as we review force protection protocols. We remain committed to our obligations to keep our troops safe.”
Signed by principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for health affairs Terry Adirim, the threat of coronavirus had made war crime hearings difficult for federal prosecutors and offering vaccines aimed to solve this.
Detainees include Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the suspected organizer of the September 11th terrorist attacks..
“It will be administered on a voluntary basis and in accordance with the Department’s priority distribution plan,” a spokesman told Fox News.
The move sparked serious backlash from Republican lawmakers, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeting, “President Biden told us he would have a plan to defeat the virus on day 1, he just never told us that it would be to give the vaccine to terrorists before most Americans.”
