    The old ying and yang of our need to detain terrorists, but where..Mullen believes continuing Guantanamo will continue to damage the image of the US.

    The chief of the U.S. military said he favors closing the prison here as soon as possible because he believes negative publicity worldwide about treatment of terrorist suspects has been "pretty damaging" to the image of the United States.

    "I'd like to see it shut down," Adm. Mike Mullen said Sunday in an interview with three reporters who toured the detention center with him on his first visit since becoming chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff last October.

    His visit came two days after the sixth anniversary of the prison's opening in January 2002. He stressed that a closure decision was not his to make and that he understands there are numerous complex legal questions the administration believes would have to be settled first, such as where to move prisoners.

    I wouldn't mind closing it, as long as the remaining prisoners were executed before the camp closed up.

    The loons will want to bring them up here and give them drivers licenses and food stamps.

    Imagine how many of those cruddy bastards would love to strap on a bomb and "Kill Americans"

    They Love Obama. (can't say to much about him, they're waiting)
