The White House convened a secret meeting with senators of both parties late Tuesday to discuss national security issues. Spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden calls it an "informal discussion." Republican Senator Bob Corker said it was "bizarre" (but does not say why).

President Obama is a great man, he doesn't have a military upbringing his time in Africa growing up during formative years in his life offer us all a unique President we should all respect.  President Obama is correct the drone program must be permitted to continue.  However Guantanamo bay provides an essential safe holding ground for enemy combatants who could otherwise escape from jails setup in the fog of war.  For if we are forced to hold people too long within the war zones there is a high likelihood military orders would issue retreats and check point updates which would abandon jails hence letting terrorist enemy combatants to escape our system of law and order during war times.
