Sensing that there might not be enough time to release Gitmo detainees on an individual basis only to have many return to the fight, this morning President Obama outlined his plan bring them to the U.S. because of national security, or something:

President Barack Obama on Tuesday presented a long-awaited plan to Congress to shut down the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, insisting that keeping the prison open is “contrary to our values.”

“It’s been clear that the detention center at Guantanamo Bay does not advance our national security,” Obama said from the Roosevelt Room at the White House. “It undermines it.”

The plan, which has been on Obama’s agenda since he took office in 2009, hinges on the transfer of between 30 and 60 detainees to U.S. soil, and suggests several possible locations in South Carolina, Kansas and Colorado. The rest of the 91 detainees at the prison could be sent to other countries.

Holding a few dozen terror suspects in Cuba is a threat to U.S. national security, so bring them here to lessen the danger? Whatever it takes to clean up the island of the Obama administration’s newest peace partners, the Castro brothers.

Update:

Obama also pitched his “close Gitmo” plan by saying it’ll save a few hundred million dollars. He waits until he’s nearly out of office to care about spending?
