Liberals get what they want and what will it accomplish

After years of harping against the Bush administration to close the Abu Ghraib prison, the military is finally going to do it. Abu Ghraib is most famous for sparking a rewrite of the definition of the word "torture". By taking stupid, humiliating, depraved acts of a few soldiers and defining that as torture, the media enflamed the Muslim world in order to score cheap points against the Bush administration and the military.

So the liberals have been asking to close the place down. When the military closes it down, the prisoners there will be moved to other prisons. So we will have a net difference of zero. What will we have accomplished. Yet I am sure the media will view this as some sort of victory, while at the same time scouring for information about the new prisons to find something to be critical about. Or did the media mean to release all of the prisoners when the prison was closed? Now of course they will redouble their efforts to close Gitmo.

    They'll eventually shut Gitmo down, it's only a matter of time. But then the question will become, what do you do with the detainees? Leftists rarely think of the repercussions.
