GTMO 2: US Ambassador Lying Or Not On Top of Issues – Sam George

The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram Constituency, Sam Nartey George, has threatened to throw the classified details of the deal on the two former Guantanamo Bay detainees in the open if the US Ambassador does not peddle the truth.

According to him, the recent comments by Robert Porter Jackson that the American government was not aware of the granting of refugee statuses to the two Yemeni nationals are quite unfortunate.

Mr Nartey George, a former presidential staffer, said the American government was kept in the know about the deal every step of the way through one Tim Miller, who worked at the US Embassy in Accra.

Therefore, he thinks the ambassador was supposed to be kept up to speed on the deal by the mentioned officer.

“It is either the US ambassador is not on top of issues or he is lying,” he stated on 3FM‘s Midday News on Wednesday.
