    If thats what anyonne thinks, then they truly are idiots.
    Hmmm...so ship all those from Guantanamo to a max security prison in the US....
    brilliant (sorry, I can't help the sarcasm)

    Do you realize how much $$$ and resources that requires? relocating America's greatest threats into a max prison that doesn't exist.

    How long will it take to build this new max prison?
    Where will it be?
    Will it be within the year timetable given by Obama?
    ....so many unanswered questions

    It's purely political and foolish on the part of Dems to close the prison. It's on a legimate military installation. It's just that the Red Cross and the MSM so botched up the concept of Gitmo, and that Durbin and others compared our soldiers to Nazis and said other derogatory things, that now they want to close it as some gesture.

    I am not for closing GITMO. However if we do I think Americas toughest sheriff, Joe Arpaio should take care of them. The treatment they would recieve is good enough for American inmates why not terrorist scumbags. At the Maricopa County Jail in Arizona inmates live in tents in the 118 deg heat . Are fed twice a day. They eat outdated green bologna sandwiches, and coolaid everyday. They wear pink jumpsuits and underwear. And they are forced to listen to patriotic music during the day.

    The scum at GITMO would be beging to return to Cuba where they are treated much better.

    So you think that it was only christian conservatives who died or lost loved ones on 9/11? What an ignorant cold blooded statement.

    If you will remember it was one of the rare times in politics where the country unified and supported the President even as he chose to go to war when the rest of the world was against us.

    Then liberal and conservative alike found out they got hosed by an Administration that was operating on false information.

    If the Gitmo detainee's are guilty then try and imprison them if not send them back to their homes.

    9/11 did not happen because we had a lack of information. It happened because we ignored information that was coming in.

    Thank you, but its not really my strategy, since that's how we won WW2. And now Germany and Japan are some of our best allies.

    Ah, so let us start another war and end hundreds of thousands more lives. That sounds wonderful. We can drop some more bombs, lose some more of our youth, and stomp some countries into the ground. I hope you realize that your plan of action would only hurt this country, acting as justification for small children to be sucked up into the ranks of terrorists. "Look what they did to your family, don't you want to get revenge? Good! Here is this bomb, avenge your loved ones". Again, brilliant ****ing plan.

    Re: Should Gitmo Be Closed ASAP?

    I don't think it should be closed at all.
    The people who are held within this prison have no rights within the US to be held to a "fair trial".
    Prisoners of war are exactly that, prisoners.
    American soldiers are tortured when they are captured by our enemies. So if you're going to cry here, you better be crying in other nations too, telling them they need to stop this Bull****.
    Torture is not okay, but it happens even on American soil. So I don't see the point in closing down a prison in Cuba. Personally, I'd rather them be in another country if they were to be released or if they were to escape. If they are out to kill Americans why would you have them in America?
    And those of you from the UK bitching about the release of these terrorists, why won't you take them? Lalia has said US should have them. Is this because you think these people are potentially dangerous and do not want them freed within your land so that they may kill your people? Well, that's interesting.

    There are a few cases of torture, and there are a few cases of released terrorists returning to kill. I say it puts both sides on even grounds.
    You want proof that the people there are terrorists, well I want proof from you that they are not. I personally do not think that the Americans just went in and took a bunch of innocent people to torture for the hell of it. That notion is ridiculous.

    So you're suggesting that we just set everyone free and let the terrorists continue to kill innocent people?
