Both the Senate and House rejected Obama's plan to shut down Guantanamo for now. Mainly because there is no actual proposed plan as to what the hell to do with all the people we are currently detaining there. Obama made the promise during his campaign and presidency to shut it down but has been unsuccessful so far in figuring out where to put all of these people. Other countries won't take them, citizens here don't want them in their local prisons, and obviously we can't cut them loose. If only we had an offshore location that our military could run and operate like a prison for terrorists...hmmm, I just can't think of where we could do that. I got it, maybe we could open up a prison camp in Cuba and ship all of the prisoners there. Maybe we could call it (H)uantanamo Bay, obviously with a silent H.
Perhaps we should just be working to fix whatever problems there are with Guantanamo as opposed to shutting the whole thing down. I am not for treating people like animals, I believe in human rights, even for bastard terrorists, but let's get real here, this is prison, not a vacation. If you aren't willing to do the time then don't commit the crime.
