"as a nation, we can deal with this"

Earlier this week, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham was on CNN talking about what to do with detainees once Guantanamo Bay shuts down: Sen. Graham on Gitmo detainees. So where do you put them? The Senator seems to think it'll be no problem -- hey, we handled the Japanese, right?

He suggests, in vague terms, putting them all in a remote place away from the general population that you can easily defend... But honestly, where? And how?

Believe it or not, he's optimistic, and actually brings up the thousands of Japanese American "internment prisoners" who were housed by the United States during World War II, basically to illustrate how, "as a nation, we can deal with this." You can't be serious, Senator. Damn, some people never learn!
