Gitmo's Everywhere?

I was just wondering why would anyone in the right mind shut down Gito just to move the terrorists somewhere else?

What would it really accomplish? Think about that for a minute!

Senators Reject Closing Gitmo Prison Without Plan
By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON May 19, 2009 (AP

President Barack Obama's promise to close the Guantanamo Bay prison suffered a blow Tuesday when his allies in the Senate said they would refuse to finance the move until the administration delivers a satisfactory plan for what to do with the detainees there.

As the Senate took up Obama's request for money for military and diplomatic operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, Democrats reversed course and said they would deny the request for $80 million for the Justice and Defense departments to relocate the 240 detainees at the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. They would also indefinitely bar the government from transferring of any of the facility's prisoners into the United States, though the ban could be relaxed in subsequent legislation.

A vote is expected Wednesday on an amendment by Sens. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, and James Inhofe, R-Okla., that would put the restrictions in the war-funding measure.

While allies such as No. 2 Senate Democrat Dick Durbin of Illinois cast the development as a delay of only a few months, other Democrats have made it plain they don't want any of Guantanamo's detainees sent to the United States to stand trial or serve prison sentences.

"We don't want them around," said Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

The Senate move matches steps taken by the House and threatens to paralyze the Obama administration's entire plan to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility by January. In recent weeks, Attorney General Eric Holder had sought to reassure skeptical lawmakers, but Congress appears unconvinced and may force the detention facility to remain in operation.

It's also evidence that a weeks-long GOP effort against Obama's order to close the Guantanamo facility is paying off.

"Guantanamo is the perfect place for these terrorists," said Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Democrats and other Republicans — including last year's GOP standardbearer, Sen. John McCain of Arizona — say it's time to close the facility, where detainees can be held for years without being charged.


So is the plumbing substandard? Is that the reason to close it? Will the detainees be sent to prisons somwhere overseas?

It doesn't appear that any country wants them.

What makes some other prison better than Gitmo anyway?

Why should the American people pay 82 million just to put them somewhere else?

Is it because everyone wants to spend 82 million dollars that we just have lying around and nothing to do with?

Bullets are cheap, why don't you propose our government that you're willing to solve the problem for them... that is if you're willing to be the judge and executioner all in one as well, that will even reduce court costs since you're so quick at being judgmental. You will very efficient you know, but do you have the balls to do it?

Hi Drew....

First let me say ...... thanks for sharing and I hope your car is better!

Ok! First! I don't believe in holding anyone who isn't guilty of doing something wrong.

I said before that they should all get a quick trial and those who we have done wrong to... give them a bucket of money ... say we're very sorry and take them home.

The ones who are found to be terrorists?

Drew! I have no problem of disposing of them in just about any quick..... "socially aceptable" .... method.

My way is the way it should have been done from the beginning and then we wouldn't have all this happy horse shit to deal with.

Free or dead are the only two choices I would offer.

But do you have any comment on the original question?

Serious if at all possible.

Thanks

Why would anyone in his right mind open the damn place to begin with?

It’s a start to ending yet another nightmare aspect to the Bush Administration.
