CHRIS CUOMO: Today the Obama Administration released its plan for closing Guantanamo. Now you said “this is a good plan”. Part of the plan involves the Naval Brig here in South Carolina in Charleston that one day could house detainees. I’m sure there is concern in the audience today about some of the worst people in the world being in their backyard. Why is that okay?
BERNIE SANDERS: What is okay is…look, we look like hypocrites and fools to the entire world. What we have done is locked up people in a way that is causing all kinds of repercussions around the world. People say “oh, you're a democratic society” We have locked people up in an island and I think that has hurt us all over the world. Obviously if people are terrorists they need to be confined and we need to make sure they stay in jail until whatever happens. But I think the president is right. I think we should shut down Guantanamo. I think in the long run it will help us significantly.
