    Yes... closing Gitmo is the golden pill, close Gitmo and Jihadists will rethink their religious fervor and not be recruited into terrorist groups.

    It's such a simple solution why didn't Bush think of it?...:eusa_doh:

    Yep, why would holding 'the worst of the worst' in IL be less a recruiting tool than in a better Cuban environment? LOL! We are currently under a winter storm alert and tonight the chill will be lower than -10. Great climate. ;) Sounds like torture to me.

    Then there are those Obama insists will be repatriated to Yemen, a place the administration admits is now a hotbed of terrorism.

    It would be funny, if not so dangerous to innocents.

    It was simply a cause celebre of many who opposed Chimpola, they created a myth around it that it was a massive Gulag and when it was finally gone the world would look fondly on a kindly USA for getting rid of it.

    The truth was it was a well run holding facility for extremly dangerous people and there is no good replacement for it.

    That is why Barry stands there with his thumb up his ass trying to figure out what to do with the inmates of it.

    yes Bush screwed up and released the wrong people to the wrong place. So this excuses Obama for repeating the mistake? I would think we would learn from past mistakes.

    Actually, Bush did release some of the prisoners only to have them rejoin the terrorist organizations and start fighting us again. Those people need to be kept at Gitmo and Obama and Holder need to quit looking on them as criminals rather than terrorists. They need to face military tribunals instead of US courts.

    Well, the rest of America is slowly finding out what many of us on the right already knew....that what Obama said was just superfluous bullshit rhetoric.

    As much bullshit as his CSPAN promise.

    Ohhhhhh....so if it happened during the Bush Administration.....before we discovered these assholes were going back to being active.....that excuses Obama??

    Good to know.:cuckoo:

    Sure wish Bush could have seen the future. But it looks like Obama can't see what's going on today.

    It took a hammering from the media to get him to change his mind on releasing 80 Yemenis in the next month or so.
