Guantanamo Saves Lives!

Or, at least it would if its legitimacy as a terrorist detainment camp were recognized. Oh well, at least Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan didn't have to choke down any of that horrible lemon rice pilaf.

Without a location outside the United States for sending prisoners, the administration must resort to turning the suspects over to foreign governments, bringing them to the U.S. or even killing them.

In one case last year, U.S. special operations forces killed an Al Qaeda-linked suspect named Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan in a helicopter attack in southern Somalia rather than trying to capture him, a U.S. official said. Officials had debated trying to take him alive but decided against doing so in part because of uncertainty over where to hold him, the official added.
Odd that the killing of a terrorist is okay by leftist standards, but capturing him and giving him three squares a day, a Koran, and a prayer mat in Cuba is unacceptable.

Because in America we travel the high road.
