Bush Breaks Silence on Obama's Gitmo Plan: 'Therapy Won't Cause Terrorists to Change their Mind'

In case anyone cares about what George W. Bush thinks, the former president let loose at a speech Wednesday night.

Former President George W. Bush has been remarkably reticent since Barack Obama took office, saying that the new commander in chief "deserves my silence." Apparently, that's no longer the case. At a speech in Erie, Pennsylvania Wednesday night, Bush broke his vow in all but word.

"I told you I'm not going to criticize my successor," he said. "I'll just tell you that there are people at Gitmo that will kill American people at a drop of a hat and I don't believe that persuasion isn't going to work. Therapy isn't going to cause terrorists to change their mind."
