    P C under this administration stands for politically corrupt. A liberal with tax payer money make a black hole look like a pot hole in your driveway.

    de facto slavery of the masses via wealth extraction.... now who is getting wealthy from this, one of many wealth extraction mechanisms in place FOR the government and it's own? 900,000 per head? Let them work to pay their keep, put a bullet in them, or let them go. There is no reason for any person incarcerated to cost any citizen a dime, or for CCA getting multi-billion dollar deals for their private prisons.

    @hankf68 They don't make a man I can't keep securely locked down for far less money, and I mean in my back yard or basement.

    What are you going to do with those terrorist? Not even to mention after Hillary and Obama are finally tried for their crimes against The United States for allowing our US Marines to die as they screamed for help.

    Obama want's close Guantanamo down? Say STAND DOWN Obama.

    I have a couple theories on why Obama is pushing so hard to close the place.

    I wonder if there is a possibility the US is holding some of his friends there.

    Or that he and Hillary might be water boarded once they are sent there for saying to hell with those Marines in Benghazi.

    I really believe, once we have justice for the Marines that died in Benghazi, Obama and Hillary will both be locked up there.

    Many of those left at gitmo have been cleared for released. Their release was blocked by the DoJ, so I am not sure what Obama is going on about. If he wanted them released they could have been released years ago.

    @Yank Maybe because some of the released inmates were later found on the battlefield again shooting at American soldiers. He has been somewhat quiet on the subject hoping people forget he promised to close it down back in '08. Any that are left in there now boo hooing about their freedom, well, they were caught origionally under the administration of a REAL president, not too long after 9/11 and they are the hard core of the fanatical. And as far as them wanting their freedom, where they came from wasn't exactly free. They can sit and rot as far as I'm concerned, pork sandwiches every day, with the only toilet paper allowed have quotes from the quran on it.

    We should kill the pieces of crap. You think they would keep any one of us alive if we weren't profitable? Much less at nearly a million a year cost?

    Close the place. Call their govt and tell them to pick up thier citizens by a certain date or we just put them in an old boat, set them adrift so they row home.

    We lost another 10 of our kids in AfganiDump last week. A few more muslim murders among populations of millions of muslims won't have any impact on us.

    And, we get to SAVE some $$$$ Yippee

    Bullcrap . Show us a breakdown of costs that doesn't include greasing our politicians & the commie Cubans palms . Impossible to spend that on a single prisoner per year without a ton of political pork or kickbacks involved ,
    Although elitist VP Biteme did spend $1.2 million of taxpayer dollars on a 2 day stay in Paris . Who's screwin who here ??

    @Angry_man well maybe not for liberals, they probably fly down to Gitmo and give conjugal visits.

    The "Land of the Free" has no business operating an offshore concentration camp for people never charged with a crime!

    There is no reason for the cost to be so high, we have bureaucrats again upping the costs so they can enjoy flights. This facility is to hold prisoners. If their attorneys want to visit, let the attorneys foot the bill. We don't have to supply special foods or anything else, they are prisoners of war and should be treated as such, no special privileges and just hold them at low cost. If they go on a hunger strike, allow them to go hungry, don't advertise it let them not eat. If they die of starvation, that was their choice, so just bury them and move on.

    There's no reasonable explanation for the extensive funding it takes to run Guantanamo Prison. Like any other government owned business, 70% of the funds are being pocketed by the ppl involved in building & managing it. Prisons & Wars are proven money makers for the government. Although the tax payers never receive any relief or get credit for our contributions.

    Is the hunger strike food savings shown in that $900,000 figure?
    It's possible the inmates are so grateful for their new $750,000 soccer field they are trying to 'give back' by lowering their food budget via the hunger strike..

    Grateful to the filthy Infidels????? Probably not. You see we live in the 21st Century and they prefer 9th Century culture.

    Given government's penchant for waste, there is no doubt in my mind that Guantanamo can be operated for far less than what government spends on it today.

    But, not as a Country Club..............Country Club living is expensive and coddling Terrorist inmates has become our only alternative.

    @TheHandsomeOne You have military people running a prison campo and you think the expense is from lawyers...seriously? Bobby?

    @FFS- We have the 150 million per year number, do you have the break down? Does it matter even? 150 million to tend to less than 100 people is absurd, and one of many similarly egregious absurdities the people just accept.

    @TheHandsomeOne Seems pretty damn absurd. Yet, it might have made us safer than the TSA will likely costs much more and is intensely annoying.

    It may be expensive, but for right-thinking conservatives, it's the only place where you can still get away with water-boarding.

    Well worth the cost...

    That place is crawling with reporters and aid workers. When are they going to do this? This facility goes so far overboard NOT to offend the sensibilities of people that they caught in combat. Any enhanced interrogation is done offsite and on other continents.

    @Hireman Lol @ "enhanced interrogation"... are you a lawyer? Call it what it is... torture.
  • #26

    @AceLuby Torture is a debatable term. Enhanced interrogation can be torture, or not. Hence the term.

    The truth is, if you ask a conservative senator about why we can't close it, you get an answer that will make your lawn greener.

    Hilarious that america cannot afford air traffic controllers and other necessities but is more than willing to fork out millions for an abomination with a zero conviction rate. Why you can't have "nice things".

    The problem is if they close it, they'll need another way/place to keep americans constantly terrified of the dangers that face them. And how will they then force us to further give up our liberties... And rights.
