After closing the office of closing Guantanamo, Obama wants to open the office of opening the office of closing Guantanamo. (2:00)

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

SO, SO WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO

WITH THESE IDIOTS?

THE ANSWER USED TO BE EASY-- I

HAVE NO IDEA, SO LET'S SHIP THEM

TO GITMO.

BUT, SADLY, GITMO IS NOT THE

CARIBBEAN PICK A BODY LEAVE A

BODY TRAY IT USED TO BE.

>> MORE THAN HALF THE DETAINEES

AT THE GUANTANAMO PRISON ARE NOW

ON HUNGER STRIKE.

>> THE HUNGER STRIKERS ARE THE

ANONYMOUS PEOPLE FROMIEMEN AND

OTHER COUNTRIES WHO ARE NOT EVEN

DEEMED A THREAT ANYMORE.

THEY'VE NEVER BEEN CHARGED.

THEY ARE JUST SITTING THERE AND

THEY'RE IN UTTER DESPAIR.

>> INMATES ARE ASKING PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD TO PAY

ATTENTION TO THEIR PLIGHT.

>> GOOD TRY, BUT YOU WON'T GET

HEADLINES ABOUT A HUNGER STRIKE.

CASE IN POINT-- NOBODY TALKED

ABOUT GAWNDA UNTIL HE HAD THE

THAT WE HAVE PROBLEMS IN

GUANTANAMO.

WHEN I WAS ELECTED IN 2008 I

GUANTANAMO.

IT IS EXPENSIVE.

IT IS INEFFICIENT.

IT IS A RECRUITMENT TOOL FOR

EXTREMISTS.

IT NEEDS TO BE CLOSED.

>> Stephen: BOLD STATEMENT.

ALMOST AS BOLD AS THE STATEMENT

HE MADE BACK IN JANUARY WHEN HE

CLOSED THE OFFICE OF CLOSING

GUANTANAMO.

( LAUGHTER )

NOW, HE'LL HAVE TO OPEN THE

OFFICE OF OPENING THE OFFICE OF

CLOSING GUANTANAMO.

( LAUGHTER )

AND HE'S ALREADY MAKE, EXCUSES

FOR HIS FUTURE FAILURES TO CLOSE

IT.

>> IT'S A HARD CASE TO MAKE

BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, I THINK FOR A

LOT OF AMERICANS, THE NOTION IS

OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND.

>> Stephen: WHAT'S WRONG WITH

OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND?

IT'S LIKE SYPHILIS-- IGNORE IT,

AND EVENTUALLY IS WILL DESTROY

THE PART OF YOUR BRAIN THAT
