My incredible, law-abiding parents, who are in their 80’s have been trying for weeks to get a spot in line for the COVID vaccination. Today, after multiple attempts, they were finally able to secure an appointment. Who knew that all they had to do was the plan and committed the worst act of terror on American soil in our history to take cuts?
The controversy sparked by images of OJ Simpson receiving his vaccination, pales in comparison to the evil people the Biden administration has prioritized over good, law-abiding, elderly American citizens waiting patiently in line for their COVID vaccines.

The Daily Mail reports – The Pentagon will begin distributing COVID-19 vaccines to Guantanamo Bay detainees, including Al Qaeda terrorists and 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, as early as next week, officials have confirmed.
The order was reportedly signed Wednesday by Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs Terry Adirim, a Biden appointee who was sworn in last week.
Prosecutor Clayton Trivett Jr, who’s leading the case against five terrorists behind the September 11 attacks, made the disclosure in a letter to defense lawyers Thursday.
‘[A]n official in the Pentagon has just signed a memo approving the delivery of the Covid-19 vaccine to the detainee population Guantánamo,’ he wrote, according to the New York Times.
The shots will be administered on a ‘voluntary basis’ as per Pentagon policy, which requires the recipient’s consent on treatment that has not been fully approved by the FDA.
Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are currently authorized for emergency use only.
The US detention camp houses 40 detainees, all of whom could receive their first shot as early as Monday if they are willing, Trivett Jr said.
The vaccine rollout comes amid a shortage of doses that have hampered inoculation efforts across the US, where only 26 million Americans have been vaccinated.
Here’s how Americans reacted on Twitter to the announcement:
Conservative David Horowitz tweeted: Sorry for the late start. I was out this morning getting my second shot of the Covid19 vaccine. Couldn’t help but notice that Biden is putting the Guantanamo Bay terrorists in front of most Americans to get the vaccine. What have we come to as a country?

This Twitter user tweets that she has friends over 60 with comorbidities who can’t get the COVID vaccination. She is NOT happy to hear Guantanamo Bay prisoners are taking cuts in front of American citizens!
The vaccination effort is reportedly intended to help resume legal proceedings for prisoners such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed that have been delayed due to the pandemic.
It is unclear how many coronavirus cases have been detected at the facility if any.
