The American people don't -- close Guantanamo Bay which is an isolated military control facility to bring these crazy bastards.
That want to kill us all to the United States.
The people who attacked us at 9/11 on our eleventh and that president Walt did destroy our way -- life.
They don't want to still your car.
They don't want a break in your half.
And we got a military prison being well Ryan so I think the American people are telling everybody in this body have you lost your mind.
We're at war act like you're at war.
-- Senator Lindsey Graham leaving no doubt where he stands he joins us good evening and senator -- -- as pretty colorful.
Yes I guess we know how you stand on.
Yes yeah I mean we've got a military prison and a very isolated part of the world into the guard for -- -- great job -- you've been to get enough.
But the guards goes pretty tough time down there is transparent that's open to the world instead this Geneva convention compliant.
And president Obama's been reluctant to really create a legal system here at home I feel comfortable with -- leave them right where we've got a.
Well you know president I have ran 2008 and closing gitmo now at 2009 sign an -- -- and the first -- anonymous.
About -- -- well that hasn't happened tonight -- using your idea it was just keep that this is definitely detained and what about any sort of try Howard due process or if they had -- -- all getting trials stand there and and all of them that.
Have into previous judges -- -- have a right to go before a federal judge.
No one has -- to -- no unless they passed through an independent judiciary.
If they're going to be tried they should be tried in military court those who attacked us on 9/11 that's not a common ground.
And I there war criminals.
If we're going to detain them does what's the difference between detaining of their mean dad why why is that why did the president -- detain him in the end that territory the nicest you know that there is a prison -- more than discuss with.
And if that they're going to be detained does that make a difference where we detain them while I think these are not common criminals I think.
There -- high value terrorist targets and keeping away from population sinners is Smart well why would he want why would he now we want that's been what do you know I don't I can't -- the downside -- -- -- gitmo has created an image problem for us because there was some pieces there early on.
Prison's been cleaned up this well run.
And the problem I have with president -- in closing Guantanamo Bay and in the United States.
I don't know legal regime -- understands these are not common criminals but war criminals.
And they represent a military threat the law of war detention have been a military order for thirty years it's not to punish people.
-- -- used to hold them off the battlefield and gather intelligence and if you're going to be tried they should be tried the military commissions the -- al-Qaeda.
Represents a military threat against our country and your street fighting a war -- -- crime is significant in this matter and this president I don't think understands the difference.
Out you know I haven't seen get low but I still see a lot you should go to answer no I like to rest a lot of US prisons and I suspect -- -- -- the -- -- my guess is that get most probably nicer.
Then probably a lot of -- -- as good run yes I have yes and I've seen these Eminem I would guess seven and I'm trying to figure out why don't let me.
Until it is the best front prison military prison anywhere in the world.
And I'm proud of the guard force I'm proud of the fact that were holding people humanely.
But I am very consistent that we fight this is a war the people down there are not common criminals they're warriors they need to be held off the battlefield.
Mike my guess is just a wild guess is that some would rather be detained -- -- -- some of these prisons in the US bonuses just a wild guess I -- -- the fiscal cliff.
Mean where -- to stand on this and again we really don't -- don't the edge where I stand the -- accent that have.
Can I just say what I want to avoid.
What I want more than anything else is to get the country out of debt and a permanent way.
The big problem with us becoming Greece is not revenues not to tax code this entitlements.
101000 baby boomers retire day.
Social security and Medicare are about fifty trillion dollars underfunded combined.
And we need to adjust the -- retirement slowly but surely for people under fifty -- Because we're all living longer you and I need to pay a little more into the system because we can afford it investor -- -- reform we need to avoid becoming Greece.
Whether to think she can do you and we didn't we do nothing gets a three -- -- nothing new and manage shift or a consultant.
Man I miss several limping along situation lots of risk and recognize it more baby boomers are trying to block rights management -- -- actually going to get much more of -- cataclysmic situation.
-- a good point I wish people look at the way the longer you wait to solve it the harder it is.
If we do nothing Social Security runs out of money in 2033.
Medicare goes broke -- -- -- 24.
-- to fix -- you'd have to increase taxes about 13.
For the entire population -- cut benefits -- 28%.
If he do it now he could save the benefit -- for those who need it the most.
As people like me to pay more and reduce my benefits costs that could afford to take that hit in the -- do it the easier it is for assault and this president.
-- biggest problem with President Obama.
Disease a small minded president and -- times he is talking about 35 vs 39 point six for people who make over a million dollars.
That doesn't get a senate that you pay eight days you could take -- eight days.
What I'm talking about is working as Republicans and Democrats like Tip O'Neill and Ronald Reagan.
I'm not asking Medicare to -- got.
Martinez New Mexico she -- the democratic legislatures less stood together you know.
I -- I'm not asking to become -- voucher program I'm not asking to privatize Social Security if we adjusted the age of retirement over the next thirty years like Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neill.
Adjusted the CPI index and means tested benefits we could save Medicare Social Security from insolvency and people need these programs.
And the good news is we'd get our kids and grandkids.
Out of this situation -- coming grace.
Why this president doesn't take our offer to reform entitlements together and we would -- -- generate more revenue -- for generating more revenue.
Only if we can and kind of reform.
Senator thank -- best season to.
