No one wants inmates at Guantanamo in their backyard. But when was the last time 99 percent of our citizens saw the prisons in question?

Let’s save the $85 million a year spent at Guantanamo and use it for veterans from wars in the Middle East.

We could house prisoners at federal facilities without revealing who goes where.

Upon arrival they would be ostracized by the other inmates.

Give them the same rights as other American prisoners. I bet a dollar to a million they will end up with a new appreciation of our penal system in the USA. Escape is not possible, otherwise it would have been done by now.

Don’t let Congress know we have done this.

It has more important things to do, such as balance the budget, lower taxes, fix our infrastructure, lower health care costs and meet more than two months a year.
