Closing Gitmo

Today President Obama signed an executive order to end the detention of enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay. I disagree with this from my core, and actually celebrate our ability to imprison these monsters away from American soil. I think it's even funny that we do so on the shores of communist Cuba.

So this executive order begs the question: Where will we send the prisoners? Most of these terrorists will still need to be detained, so we have to send them somewhere. Today I heard the suggestion (from Glenn Beck) to send them to Alcatraz. I think this is a fantastic idea. I am quite sure the loudest voices to close Gitmo have come from Bay Area Liberal types, so they should welcome them right? Besides, lovely San Francisco is a sanctuary city, so when we release some of these evil-doers, (or they escape), we won't have to ship them back to the battlefields of the Middle East where they immediately begin shooting at our boys again. They can just stay in San Francisco as illegal aliens, living alongside some of their biggest advocates! According to Glenn Beck, housing these terrorists at Alcatraz would allow Nancy Pelosi to "keep an eye out" to make sure the detainees were treated well. (How could they possibly be treated any better than they were in that tropical paradise called Guantanamo? Sending them back the Middle East was the only torture.)
