This is a good point too, but it's actually one of the story lines that makes a little sense to me.
Rather than attack the prison quickly - unfamiliar territory to them, well-defended with new weaponry now and walls to overcome - why not try to sell them on a potential peace treaty instead and let them walk into a slaughter?
Even when they successfully got into the prison yard, they would have no idea where to start looking. Hopefully, the Gov can now start torturing Andrea to obtain this kind of info.
In the meantime, while Rick mulls over the Michone offer, The Gov can also have Martinez organize and train many other citizens who previously weren't "battle-ready."
