The prison for detainees at Guantanamo Bay has become a symbol. A symbol the Democrats would prefer to close the chapter on.
From the LA Times
WASHINGTON — A lightning rod for international criticism, the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, not long ago appeared headed for closure. President Bush and his top advisors said they wanted to shutter the controversial lockup.

But the latest attempt to shut it down is facing collapse: The detention facility has been embraced by many Republicans as a potent political symbol in their quest to seize the terrorism issue ahead of next year's elections.
The debate over Gitmo will continue. It is a debate that is settled on the Left: close it down and turn any terrorists there into the criminal equivalent of Islamofascist crack dealers. Let them then hire one of the Democrat Party's interest groups: lawyers.

If the facility at Guantanamo was shut down, it's need wouldn't disappear. There will continue to be those who wish great harm to Americans, both at home and abroad. Evil still resides in the world. Whether the Left believes it or not, it's out there lurking. Imprison that lurking evil at Guantanamo.
