Biden Admin Rethinks Plan to Give COVID Vaccine to Gitmo Detainees Before Americans

Biden Admin Rethinks Plan to Give COVID Vaccine to Gitmo Detainees Before Americans

“No Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. We’re pausing the plan to move forward”

In a move of stunning tone-deafness, the Biden administration reportedly planned to give detainees at Guantanamo Bay the COVID-19 vaccine before many elderly Americans have even received it.

They have since decided against this.

As you can probably imagine, this sparked some push back from Republicans in Congress and ordinary citizens. Survivors of 9/11 weren’t exactly thrilled with the idea either.

Bronson Stocking reports at Townhall:

Biden Administration Halts Vaccine Plan Following Backlash from 9/11 Survivors and Republicans

President Biden boasted about his administration’s goal to give 100 million vaccine doses in his first 100 days in office. It was hardly a goal since Biden pretty much inherited that pace from the Trump administration. But what Biden didn’t boast about was his administration’s plan to vaccinate detainees, like 9/11 mastermind Kaled Sheik Mohammad, being held at the Guantanamo Bay detention center long before the vaccine becomes available to the overwhelming majority of Americans.

Biden is just days into the job and is already backtracking on an administrative decision to give the coronavirus vaccine to detainees at Guantanamo Bay. The 6,000 residents at the U.S. naval base began receiving the first of two vaccine doses on Jan. 8, but the Trump administration never clarified at the time whether or not detainees would be among those vaccinated. The Biden administration, however, wanted to make sure they would be.

On Thursday, a Pentagon official confirmed that detainees would be offered coronavirus vaccines on a voluntary basis beginning as early as Monday. But the Pentagon announced on Saturday that it was pausing the plan to vaccinate detainees at Gitmo.

The reversal comes after intense backlash to the decision from 9/11 survivors, Republicans, and incensed Americans.

The Pentagon has made it clear that this effort has been shelved, for now at least.

Pentagon pauses plan to offer coronavirus vaccine to Guantánamo Bay prisoners

The Pentagon announced Saturday that it is pausing a plan to offer coronavirus vaccines to prisoners at Guantanamo Bay after facing a wave of pushback.

“No Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. 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,” tweeted Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.

It’s just amazing that anyone considered this plan in the first place.

    I would be happy to whip up a vaccine for Guantanamo detainees, and guarantee that none of them will die from Wohan Virus 🙂

Meanwhile Biden’s DOJ is investigating Elon Musk’s SpaceX for not hiring a non-US citizen who wasn’t a lawful permanent resident.

They are afraid that SpaceX is favoring citizens over non-citizens.

The notion that this idiotic “plan” even made it beyond a mention followed by a “shut up you crazy lunatic and take the day off” is an indictment of our current government.

Since they made the decision the first time without thinking, how could this be re-thinking?

Did they really say: “We’re pausing the plan to move forward.”?????
This is an oxymoron of the first order. It is something so profoundly idiotic that only a Biden Administration spokesfool could have said it.
Perhaps they’re going to “circle back” and explain it to we, the little people?

The only real controversy here is the reasoning behind the initial decision to inoculate Gitmo detainees.

The reality of the COVID vaccines is that they are untested rush jobs that have failed to answer the basic questions on both efficacy and safety of vaccines. They are being sold to the American people as a panacea for a variety of reasons, literally none having to do with the dangers of the virus itself. The vaccines are being pushed to:
1) Justify the actions already taken in the name of COVID,
2) Justify additional restrictions; such as work permits, school attendance permits and travel permits.

What is really telling, in regard to the COVID vaccines, is the fact that increasing numbers of medical professionals are choosing not to receive them. And, now we see, via CDC reports, that seasonal influenza has all but disappeared, in the US.

Just doing what Dhimmi-crats do — prioritizing jihadists and criminals, above American citizens. Typical Dhimmi-crat arrogance and dhimmitude.

    They are sado-masochists. Thr dhimmitude is and example of their joyful masochism, but their hatred and acts against us are examples of their sadism.

    For the best petri dish, Look no further than hollywood idiots.

Yeah, save the terrorists and kill our seniors. Per some reports, vaccinated elderly are dropping like flies.

“No Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. We’re pausing the plan to move forward”

Until we pull another idiotic stunt and you’re all looking elsewhere then we’ll quietly “unpause the plan” and give all the Gitmo terrorist prisoners the covid vaccine without you realizing what’s happening.
