Andrea Mitchell Tells GOP Senator: Gtimo ‘Hurting Our Standing in the World’

<p>Talking to Republican Colorado Senator Cory Gardner during her MSNBC show on Tuesday, host Andrea Mitchell lectured the GOP lawmaker on opposing President Obama&rsquo;s plan to shut down Guantanamo Bay and bring terrorist detainees to prisons inside the United States: <strong>&ldquo;So we&rsquo;re holding prisoners, paying for them, and arguably hurting our standing in the world because Guantanamo has become such a red flag everywhere in the world, when we could have them locked up in the U.S. and put away for life.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>In response, Gardner completely ripped apart her argument: &ldquo;Well, actually, again, if you are a terrorist you belong in Guantanamo Bay. That&rsquo;s where they should stay....And I think this idea that somehow if you transfer everyone out of Guantanamo Bay that terrorists are just going to surrender, that they&rsquo;re not going to continue their fight against the United States or the west, is gravely mistaken.&rdquo;</p>
