I believe so, but probably not for the reasons that so many are offering these days. Gitmo is no "Gulag", by a long shot.
However, I regard it as being distasteful to maintain a military base on an island whose government ours has been trying its best to destroy at the behest of an extreme minority of our citizens... and, I would much rather have those prisoners, and their caretakers, on American soil... perhaps reopen a recently deceased military installation.

Not only should we keep Gitmo open, we should send Sen. Durbin there as a willing collaborator with the enemy. I don't want any scumbag terrorist on American soil, not now, not ever. On a practical side, the Federal prison system has neither the room nor the training on how to deal with this type of vermin; the most practical solution is to keep it open, and let it continue to be a terminal stop for terroirsts, and a thorn in Castro's ass for all I care.

No it should not be closed but it should be looked at and cleaned up.
