Short Description: 
Joe and Abe solve the Curious Case of the Cowardly War-Mongers

Closing the Guantanamo Bay gulag would be nice and all, but not if we have to bring the terrorists back to the United States! Apparently they're all 10 feet tall with various mutant superpowers, and no American prison can hold them. As soon as we brought them here, they would break out en masse and start a cross-country rampage, burning and pillaging as their ranks are swelled by liberal America-haters and other ne-er-do-wells.

Joe and Abe examine the rank cowardice behind the Senate's vote to keep the Guantanamo prison open.
