U.S. Republican presidential candidate and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush speaks at a town hall meeting at Coastal Carolina University in ConwayBy Steve Holland CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) – Republican Jeb Bush will pledge on Wednesday that if elected president next year he will keep open the disputed U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as long as the fight against Islamic militants lasts. Bush, looking to show he is capable of being commander in chief in the face of multiple threats abroad, will lay out a national security strategy in a speech that he retooled in order to take account of the Paris attacks that killed 129 people last Friday. The Bush campaign provided details of his plan in advance of the speech at The Citadel, a military college in Charleston.
