Apparently the Government Accountability Office has released a report that told lawmakers that, if the political will exists, the American prison system exists that could be used to incarcerate the terrorist prisoners we are holding at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba here in the United States. Of course, President Obama promised to close the island facility four years ago, and still hasn’t been able to do that because of opposition. But now that his final election is over, he thinks he can try it again.
I don’t like Lindsay Graham much, he’s usually too squishy on most issues. But if Fox News, quoted him correctly, he got this one exactly right;
“Most Americans believe that the people at Guantanamo Bay are not some kind of burglar or bank robber,” Graham said. “They are bent on our destruction. And I stand with the American people that we’re under siege, we’re under attack and we’re at war.”
“Some of my colleagues in this body have forgotten what 9/11 is all about,” he said. “The people who attacked us on 9/11, in that prison, want to destroy our way of life. They don’t want to steal your car. They don’t want to break in your house. And we’ve got a military prison being well run, so I think the American people are telling everybody in this body, ‘Have you lost your mind? We’re at war. Act like you’re at war.’”
Personally, I like knowing where those guys are and that there’s no where for them to go. Some dingus at the Defense Department, Alan Liotta, in the Office of Detainee Affairs, told the Senate Committee that closing Guantanamo would remove a recruiting tool for the jihadists. WTF? It doesn’t matter where you put them, that will be the new recruiting tool. At least at Guantanamo, they’re not here.
The Left is so infantile and immature on this subject.
