President Obama has been working to close the Guantanamo Bay terrorist detainee facility – AKA: America torture facility. It has been utilized less and less as inmates are dispersed to other facilities in an effort to cessate its usuage altogether. Sen. Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, has become very vocal in his belief that Guantanamo Bay should not open remain open but should in fact have increased use, even though their “interrogation” programs have produced slim to nothing in terms of reliable information and evidence.
Cotton feels very strongly that they best way to prevent domestic terrorism is by locking up violators and even suspects indefinitely. The crazy senator went on to state:
“As far as I’m concerned, every last one of them can rot in hell, but as long as they don’t do that, then they can rot in Guantanamo Bay.”
One of the statistics that Sen.Cotton greatly enjoyed sharing was that 30% of detainees that have left Guantanamo Bay have gone straight back to participating in terrorism activities – probably because their time rotting in the hell that is Guantanamo was so utterly horrific that all they can think about upon release is revenge…
Until President Obama leaves office next year, Senator Cotton’s outcry will fall on deaf ears as our President has made it part of his campaign to close the facility. Good thing too – a place of such terrifying nature and with such a nasty reputation as Guantanamo should be abandoned and forgotten about. Cotton can bitch all he likes. That place has got to go, and its looking like it will.
