    I guess my math is off, because Bush spent trillions of dollars to start an unjust war in Iraq, destroy its infrastructure and kill tens of thousands of innocent civilians.

    Your lack of perspective doesn't go unnoticed either

    None. All of this is the result of liberal whining about style, not substance.

    So it wasn't Gitmo the liberals hated, it's WHERE it was located that they had a problem.

    Uh........huh?

    The "unjust war" meme is not only tiresome, but proven wholly wrong.

    Really? On which plane of existence would that be the case?

    The one where most people exist, and not some 'stuck on stupid' realm where you still hold out hope of seeing Bush in handcuff's.

    Guess someone really owed O in Chicago! Ayers probably wanted them closeby so he could conspire with them to continue his domestic terrorism campaign.

    I think this is the other way around since this move will mean money into Illinois.

    51% in Illinois Oppose Prison for Guantanamo Terrorists In Their State - Rasmussen Reports

    Fifty-one percent (51%) of Illinois voters oppose relocating some suspected terrorists from the Guantanamo prison camp in Cuba to a prison in their state.
    More:

    49% Oppose Closing Guantanamo Prison Camp - Rasmussen Reports

    Forty-nine percent (49%) of voters nationwide now disagree with President Barack Obama’s decision to close the prison camp for suspected terrorists at the Guantanamo Naval Base in Cuba. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, conducted after the President’s speech on Guantanamo last week, shows that 38% agree with his decision.

    Just 25% share the President’s view that the Guantanamo camp weakened national security. Fifty-one percent (51%) disagree with that perspective.

    And, by a 57% to 28% margin, voters oppose moving any of the suspected terrorists to prisons in the United States. Republicans and voters not affiliated with either major party strongly oppose transfers to U.S. prisons. Democrats are evenly divided.
    Just something to think about.
