    He probably thinks about quiting the current drone programme every day, too.

    If American citizens were dressed in orange jumpsuits, viciously tortured, crammed in cages for years without being charged with anything, and racist right wing foreigners from the country responsible claimed that they were being treated as though they were in a holiday resort, I wonder what Obama and his worshippers would’ve said.

    The Senate Democrats, Ted? You make it sound like the Republicans were lining up to approve Gitmo’s closing. Was there anyone in Congress who didn’t reject it?

    Thing is, Obama never called for the people abducted into Guantanamo, who let’s remember have never been convicted or even charged with any crime, to be freed. He wanted to close it and open another gulag in a different location.

    Certainly not on the Republican side.

    That’s what ISIS is doing. And we are waging a war against them.

    I see your point. Senate Democrats were the swing vote.

    And swapping out 5 murders for one traitor has done what? Do they love us now? Or did they just get 5 more to fight and lead in a war to kill us infidels. And now they have a nice little price. kidnap a USA military guy and Obama will give you guys and cash. How is that working out?
    And another thing, please, they have it very well at the 5 star club Gitmo. They get a chef to prepare meals, a soccer field, in fact they have it better then the guards. So one or 2 got extended baths. We the USA are not read in to the lives that were saved by asking them not so nicely about how they had planned to kill the infidels.
    Bottom line, you can not show me or anyone where putting the animals back into the wild has helped the USA, but I can show you where they have returned to the battlefield to murder again.

    Gee, sounds kinda like the U.S. prison system.

    One of the more insightful comments on gitmo came from Jennifer Harbury who observed that without it, all we have left are the black sites. In other words, the torture doesn’t stop, it just goes underground.

    I still say the best approach would be to open all the cage doors, and remove the fences that sourround Gitmo. They would have the choice of continuing to submit to horrible treatment, or walking into Cuba proper. Maybe they could even get decent medical treatment there, unlike the situation for many in the U.S.
    BTW, that approach wouldn’t require ANY appropriation of funds.

    They were in control. Absolute control of the govt. If it didn’t get closed they are responsible. Period.
