Joint Chiefs Chair Seeks Gitmo Prison Closure

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba - The chief of the U.S. military said Sunday he favors closing the prison here as soon as possible because he believes negative publicity worldwide about treatment of terrorist suspects has been "pretty damaging" to the image of the United States.

"I'd like to see it shut down," Adm. Mike Mullen said in an interview with three reporters who toured the detention center with him on his first visit since becoming chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff last October.
How much are you willing to bet that within 2 months we will hear news reports that Admiral Mullen has decided to retire "to spend more time with family." Any takers?

This guy, while speaking the absolute truth, is obviously not a loyal Bushie or he'd be pushing for more waterboarding at Gitmo. Using common sense won't keep him in the stead of the Chimp for long. He'll be vacationing permanently by Easter.
