Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates suggested on Thursday that as many as 100 detainees at the prison at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba would end up held without trial on American soil, a scenario he acknowledged would create widespread if not unanimous opposition in Congress.THEY DECIDED TO CLOSE IT BEFORE DECIDING WHAT TO DO WITH THE DETAINEES. HOW SMART!
The estimate from Mr. Gates was the most specific yet from the Obama administration about how many of the 241 prisoners now at Guantanamo could not be safely released, sent to other countries or appropriately tried in American courts.
In January President Obama ordered the prison closed by the end of year, but his administration is still working on what to do with the detainees.
CAN ANYONE REALLY ARGUE THAT WE'LL BE SAFER WITH THEM HERE?
THIS MOVE GOES RIGHT ALONG WITH ENDING HARSH INTERROGATION AND WATER-BOARDING: IT MAKES US LESS SAFE.
OBAMA IS MAKING US LESS SAFE.
