There is national outage after the Biden Administration announced that prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba will receive the China Virus vaccine before American citizens. Among those will who have access to the vaccine is Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the accused mastermind of the September 11th terrorist attacks.
“Joe Biden: making sure terrorists get vaccinated since 2021,” Steve Guest, communications adviser for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted.
The order was signed on Jan. 27 by Terry Adirim, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs who was sworn in as a Biden appointee on Inauguration Day, a Pentagon spokesman confirmed.
The move immediately sparked outrage from New Yorkers who lived through and helped bring New York back from its darkest day.
“You can’t make this up. The ridiculousness of what we get from our government. They will run the vaccine down to those lowlifes at Guantanamo Bay before every resident of the United States of America gets it is the theater of the absurd,” said Tom Von Essen, who was city Fire Commissioner during 9/11 and lost 343 firefighters on 9/11.
“It’s f—ing nuts,” he told the New York Post.
A spokesman for the Department of Defense confirmed that officials had signed an order which will see COVID-19 vaccinations “offered to all detainees and prisoners.”
The shots could be given as soon as next week.
“It will be administered on a voluntary basis and in accordance with the Department’s priority distribution plan,” spokesman Michael Howard told The Post.
Fox News reports a lack of vaccinations has reportedly made it difficult for federal prosecutors to move forward with war crimes hearings at the base.
“It is inexcusable and un-American that President Biden is choosing to prioritize vaccinations for convicted terrorists in Gitmo over vulnerable American seniors or veterans,” Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY, said Saturday.
John Feal, a demolition supervisor at the Ground Zero pile in the aftermath of the attacks who has various 9/11-related illnesses, and who has not yet gotten the vaccine, was stunned by the news.
“The fact that the 9/11 community can’t get the vaccine and the terrorists can show how backward our government is,” he told The Post. “It’s the most ludicrous thing I’ve ever heard. It’s an insult to the people who ran into the towers and were killed and those who worked on the pile for months and are ill.”
Forty detainees remain at the United States military prison in Cuba, including the man accused of plotting the worst attack on US soil, which claimed 2,977 incocent lives on Sept. 11, 2001.
