Frank Gaffney testified at a Senate Judiciary hearing on closing GITMO and did a fantastic job of explaining why GITMO should remain open and the terrorist remain on site. One if his best points was when he was addressing what some have lamented as ‘wasteful spending’ when it comes to keeping GITMO open. He asked in response:
“How much has it meant that not a single one of these people or any of their friends have been able to attack us because of their proximity to a federal detention center in the United States? How many American lives have been spared as a result? There’s no way to know for sure, but are you feeling lucky? Do you want to take a chance?”
BOOM! Great questions!
