I don't think it's a simple equation, closing Gitmo = less recruits. That's too simplistic.

But it's pretty obvious if you listen to the terrorists and detainees themselves, maintaining Gitmo = more recruits.

It's a lot easier to create hate than to create good will.

That doesn't make any sense.

That's like saying you weren't concerned about Cassel in 2010 because he wasn't totally shitting his pants yet.

If you create the capability for abuse, then that is a problem. I would rather make this an issue before blatant abuse than afterwards. (Though I would argue we're already there.)
