OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – U.S. Senator James Lankford has returned from a visit to the Guantanamo Bay detention facility that he took with four fellow freshman Republican senators.
Lankford joined Senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas; Joni Ernst of Iowa; Thom Tillis of North Carolina; and Mike Rounds of South Dakota who returned Friday night from the trip that included seeing detention operations and meeting with military commanders.
Lankford said in a news release after returning that he believes the facility where suspected terrorists have been held is important and should remain open.
