    Colin Powell says Guantanamo should be closed

    Sun Jun 10, 10:51 AM ET

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former U.S. Secretary of State
    Colin Powell said on Sunday the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay for foreign terrorism suspects should be immediately closed and its inmates moved to the United States.....

    "Guantanamo has become a major, major problem ... in the way the world perceives America and if it were up to me I would close Guantanamo not tomorrow but this afternoon ... and I would not let any of those people go. I would simply move them to the United States and put them into our federal legal system," Powell told NBC's Meet the Press.

    "Essentially, we have shaken the belief the world had in America's justice system by keeping a place like Guantanamo open and creating things like the military commission. We don't need it and it is causing us far more damage than any good we get for it," he added.

    Now what would that cheese eatin' surrender monkey know about th' war on terrruh?

    Aside from being one of the principle apologists, at the time, for the invasion and occupation of Iraq...plenty. He was, after all, our Secretary of State, until he got his walking papers from Shrub. And, as Chairman of the JCS under Poppy Bush, was instrumental in the pursuit of the first Gulf War.

    He's also right in this matter. The very existence of the GITMO detention center is an affront to the Constitution, our Founding Fathers and every American who has died to preserve and protect this nation...a nation of laws. Laws which this President and his administration, apparently, feel don't apply to them.

    I think guantanamo should NOT be closed. We need terrorists would want to blow up our soldiers and kill us, locked up.

    I dont care what terrorists, and people who are sympathetic to terrorists in the muslim world think about guantanamo.

    We cant do things to make people like us, we must do the right thing, although defining what is the right thing, is a healthy debate.

    "I think guantanamo should NOT be closed. We need terrorists would want to blow up our soldiers and kill us, locked up."

    We can do that through the american justice system and the federal courts. They can rot in a federal penetentiary.

    Every terrorist the Clinton adminstration (and I'm assuming Poppy Bush, too) brought to justice in our court systems, were succesfully prosecuted, convicted and are now rotting in jail. So, where's the problem?
