“Gitmo is a recruiting tool for Jihadists.” Actually, I believe that is true. Meaningless, but true.
Everything we do to protect ourselves, defend ourselves, counterattack the Jihadists, attack the Jihadists, promote western liberalism, spread democracy, liberty, freedom and free markets are all recruiting tools for the Jihadists. Just as our reaction to Pearl Harbor in 1941 was a recruiting tool for the Japanese War machine, so are all of our reactions to Jihadist attacks short of abject surrender.
Anyone one using this argument to justify our actions is an unpatriotic surrender monkey!
