Chuck Hagel Says Cheney's Eight Years are Over

Republican Chuck Hagel says the hysteria of having Gitmo detainees in U.S. prisons is irrational. Yay for Hagel. It is completely irrational. Fear the neighborhood sex offender(s), not the terrorist, essentially a coward, safe in a super max prison. Democrats were completely irrational to vote down funding closure of Guantanamo. Even with the power, they're wimpy. 

James Moran, congressman of Alexandria, Virginia, says Alexandria would take detainees as well. See the video here. He says sometimes our limbic system gets the better of us. We've been fear mongered to for so long, we've been trained to be irrational.
Frank Wolf, republican congressman, then comes on to offer some more fear mongering. Man, they're good. Actually, he droned on and nearly put me to sleep.
