Closing Guantanamo

President Obama has been trying to close our prison at Guantanamo, Cuba, since he was elected in 2008. The GOP were opposed and no states wanted the prisoners in prisons in their state. I suggest that President Obama pardon and release all prisoners remaining in Guantanamo. That will present President Trump with an empty prison that he can fill or leave empty. If he fills the prison, the responsibility will be his alone. Some of the captives on release will rejoin al-Qaeda or ISIS, but both organizations will lose more than they gain by the loss of Guantanamo as a recruiting tool.
