Redskins Diehard Posted May 29, 2009 Share Posted May 29, 2009 Dunno. Good question. I wonder if he will be discussing that in the longer interview that is about to be released? Yes, it did. I do not pretend that Gitmo is even close to the biggest recruiting tool against us. However, it IS one that is totally within our control. We can't just abandon Israel (nor should we), and we can't go back and undo our invasion of Iraq that happened 7 years ago, and we can't stop being a very powerful and wealthy primarily Christian nation that dominates the world militarily. But we can close Gitmo. That is an option easily available to us that might help a little. That is the real question here. What does he mean by responsible. With that caveat out there and no further explanation I think this is pretty useless exercise to debate what his words mean. Until we take a stance that is perceived to be even handed in that dispute in the middle east then all those other measure you mention are moving deck chairs on the Titanic in my opinion. It might help a little, so it might be worth doing. There is also a difference in my opinion between "abandoning Israel" and taking a "even handed approach"...that discussion of course falls way outside the scope of this thread.
