Close Guantanamo? Grass Roots and Political Pressure Says Maybe Not

Organizations like Move America Forward have visited Guantanamo and returned to launch a campaign to keep the facility open. This is just the latest in a rising public outcry against hasty closure of a facility that supporters say will endanger America. “Keep Gitmo open, and keep the terrorists behind bars,” MAF says.

MAF leaders like Melanie Morgan and Cat Moy (co-authors of the excellent book, American Mourning) have recently visited Gitmo on a support-the-troops mission.

As readers of this space have seen, bipartisan political pressure is mounting both from a “not in my backyard” standpoint and as an issue of national security to encourage President Obama to think long and hard about alternatives to relocation of detainees onto US soil.

    I think you’ll be interested to read my interview of Brigadier General Greg Zanetti in the upcoming Military Officer magazine. He speaks frankly about the conditions there. Would like to hear your take on the interview.
