Thank you

Looking forward to further clarification. I put more weight in direct quotes from Rand than from his campaign manager, so I am assuming he really did criticize the Obama administration for wanting to close Gitmo. It's unfortunate this letter didn't provide Rand's statement about what indispensable function Gitmo serves. I'm assuming he believes there are real terrorists being caught in sufficient numbers to justify our taking over...what?...half of Cuba, for a place to process and keep them.

Policy-wise, wouldn't it make more sense to try them right there in their own country, so that if they are found innocent, they might conveniently return home? And then they would be in no danger of accidentally being confused with convicted criminals and tortured at Gitmo...which leads to their indefinite detention.
