Obama Preps for Gitmo Closure

The real question is what they'll do with the couple hundred detainees who haven't been charged. Apparently no one wants them on US soil. That's interesting, and I don't quite understand all of the ramifications; though for sure it would be lots harder to transfer them from the US proper to a prison in Egypt, say. For "questioning." The freshness dates on many of those prisoners must have expired by now. Is it really worth depriving them of their basic human rates, just in case they know somebody who knows somebody who blew themselves up in India or Iraq? Phooey. W and his pals have left lots of stains on the rug, Obama might as well start scrubbing at one of the larger offenses as soon as he can.
