Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), the first woman to fly a combat mission for the U.S. Air Force, sounded off tonight on Guantanamo Bay and Sen. Tom Cotton’s impassioned remarks about the prison at a Senate committee hearing today.

Cotton fought back against the idea that Gitmo is a recruitment tool for terrorists.

"In my opinion, the only problem with Guantanamo Bay is that there are too many empty beds and cells there right now. We should be sending more terrorists there for further interrogation to keep this country safe. As far as I'm concerned, every last one of them can rot in hell. But as long as they don't do that, they can rot in Guantanamo Bay," Cotton said.

McSally told Megyn Kelly tonight that we are in “a generational fight” with Islamist extremists.

“The king of Jordan was more emboldened and showed more resolve than our own commander-in-chief,” she said, adding that the administration is failing to call radical Islam what it is.

McSally stressed that the last thing we need to be doing is returning extremists to the battlefield.

The Arizona congresswoman called on the U.S. to use all elements of power to defeat and destroy the terroristic threat.
