Unless he can find an isolated, well secured area of the US to house terrorists, he shouldn't close it down.

I've got no problem with sticking battlefield-pickup terrorists in Guantanmo, but the prison can be used to house "non-combatants". Since the President, under the Military Commissions Act of 2006, can now declare anyone he wants an enemy combatant, I find this to be quite a catch-22.

A reasonable compromise would be to send the " enemy combatants" back to Afghanistan and Iraq to be tried by the civilian governments there. The results would be swift and final.

The danger with that is, the President can now declare anyone an enemy combatant.
