Playing Politics

I’m still trying to figure out what the advantage is to moving the Gitmo terrorists to a federal prison in Illinois. If conditions are going to be just as before, there’s no need to move them, and the enemy will still use their treatment as a recruiting tool (according to the administration). If their treatment is to be different, and the terrorists are allowed to mix with and recruit other federal prisoners, it’s even worse. Besides all this, to a certain degree, moving them here makes law-abiding citizens at least theoretically less safe.

When will Democrats ever stop playing politics with our national security?
