I'm pretty sure this is the right thing to do.
Pretty sure.

Just really hopeful it doesn't bite us in the ass somehow.

First off, I agree that Gitmo is not the right thing but I don't know the right thing to do in this situation either. As far as some released terrorist going to get all misty eyed because we have a justice system, please forget it. These guys are zealots and fanatics. They'll hate us and Israel until either they're all dead or we are. We can minimize some damage (closing/fixing Gitmo)to those muslim's that are on the fence and haven't made up their minds to make jihad on us.

Do you think they sit around the breakfast table wondering who they are gonna make a jihad on today?

Hussein: "Hey Abdullah, pass the croissants. What are you up to today?"

Abdullah: "Well Hussein, I am either going to look for a job, or try and steal a jetliner and fly it into Disneyland"

Hussein: "Well, whatever you do, please remember to have on clean underwear!"

Is a delicious, buttery, flaky croissant a basic human right?

At only 99 cents for a limited time at Burger King, HOW CAN IT NOT BE??????

Where will they go? Most of the counties they came from don't want them back. Send them to the others and they will be killed or join back up in the fight. Can't put them in the Prison system in the US. So..... where do they go??

Q: If Guantanamo Bay prison is closed, where will the detainees go?

A: The Bush administration negotiated for many months with countries whose nationals are still at Guantanamo, trying to get them to take in detainees.

Some governments have denied the Guantanamo prisoners are in fact their citizens, while others have been reluctant to agree to U.S. requests to imprison or monitor returnees.

Some of those being held include Chinese Muslim Uighurs who Washington says would face persecution if they returned home, together with Libyans, Uzbeks and Algerians who are also at risk.

Some could be granted asylum by other nations if their own countries refuse to take them.

Last month, Portugal's foreign minister urged other European countries to take in Guantanamo prisoners, saying such a move could make it easier for Obama to close the prison. Switzerland has said it is open to taking in detainees.
