BRET BAIER: Guantanamo Bay. The president, this administration seems adamant that they are going to close it, one way or another. Is Congress going to let them? SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY): We are going to do everything we can to prevent that. Guantanamo Bay is the perfect place for these foreign terrorists. Remember these are not American citizens. The administration's policy has been two-fold: either to kill them with drones -- and I don't necessarily oppose that, but a dead terrorist can't talk -- or to capture a terrorist overseas and put them in a U.S. court where they are given a lawyer and told to shut up. The most important thing you can get from a terrorist is information, and Guantanamo Bay is a perfect place for the location of foreign terrorists who can give us information to thwart the next attack.
