The right wing is trying to make the Gitmo detention facility a national campaign promise broken issue.
First, most Americans have little interest in this issue although GITMO is probably the most expensive prison in the world at $800K/Year Per Detainee per Mother Jones.
Most federal prison costs about $25k per inmate per year.
Of course, Commentary is omitting the fact that Obama wanted to move the prisoners to a maximum security prison on the mainland , but the Republicans threw a sissy fit about having terrorists in the US.
Of course, No prisoner has ever escaped form a maximum security prison in the US.
Rightardia's advice to Republicans. Find another issue to complain about.
