“We’re not sending everybody home … even if we close Guantánamo. We’re going to send them to facilities in the United States of America. That's been the plan all along,” McCain said on "State of the Union."
McCain also said on CNN that the U.S. could've swapped other prisoners, rather than the five they released, who he believes are too dangerous and pose to great a threat to Americans still serving in Afghanistan.
