Cut 'em loose.

If DOD wants it, keep one island and call it Gitmo West.

This is how this crap works: Back in the early forties the USNavy (government) took over the island of Kahoolawe from the state. From then on access was forbidden as it was a bombing practice island and unsafe for the public. The Hawaiians wanted it back for other use but didn't have enough political clout to swing anything so they got white citizens to back their cause. That is, get the island back from the Gov. for all our use. Well we went to bat for them and after many years got Kahoolawe back. Trouble is the Hawaiian people decided to make it for Hawaiians only so the same people that got it for them cannot go there or even fish in the surrounding waters. That was enough for me to quit helping those A holes. And I an American Indian used to have feelings for them but not any more.
