Gitmo should be fixed and stay open

Newt Gingrich is on meet the depressed this morning. The discussion right now is around closing Gitmo. I was to the point I didn't see a difference between closing Gitmo and putting the "terrorists" in American prisons and keeping it open, until Gingrich spoke this morning.

Basically, what convinced me that Gitmo should be kept open, as Newt says, until the end of the War on Terror -- however long that might be, because "whatever problems that are associated with Gitmo now are going to be present no matter where you hide those people. Therefore, instead of moving the problem, we should solve the problem where it exists today."

Obama said in a speech this past week said terrorists are using Gitmo as a recruiting tool, and a greater incentive to terrorize. I think this is just another statement by Obama in which he is blaming America for terrorism. When, in fact, these terrorists are the bad buys, and they are the blame.

The blame is their extreme religious beliefs and hatred of anyone who loves material things and believes in a different God should die.

So, in summary, we should keep Gitmo open and do whatever it takes to prevent Gitmo from being a terrorist recruiting too. It can be done.

I heard an interesting poll number today, that Americans are now in favor of keeping GITMO open by a 2 to 1 ratio. And when you factor in the chance of bring detainees to somebody's home state the number jumps to 3 to 1.
