January 11th marked the 14th anniversary of the opening of the prison at Guantánamo Bay, and the start of its 15th year of operations. There is an epic battle in play at this very moment as to the future of this U.S. prison facility. Today on the show is former Deputy Director for Intelligence at U.S. CENT COM Colonel Jim Waurishuk.

Colonel Jim Waurishuk, 30 year career senior intelligence officer, retired U. S. Air Force Colonel, held positions on the White House national security staff, headquarters US Central Command – served in Grenada, Panama, Bosnia, Iraq & Afghanistan.

The President had this to say – “Keeping this facility open is contrary to our values, It undermines our standing in the world. It is viewed as a stain on our broader record of upholding the highest standards of rule of law.” How do U.S. allies around the world view this – do they think it undermines our standing in the world? We’ll find out that and much more today from Colonel Waurishuk.
