Gitmo: Open for Business

I'm one of those who believes Obama will decide under his own power that closing Gitmo is easier said than done. I think he'll find that deciding what to do with those currently housed there isn't as straightforward as one might hope, for a variety of reasons. And it appears that the AP has recently discovered that not all of those reasons were made up in a conspiracy between Bush, Cheney and Rummy.

A few of those people may actually be enemies of the United States. And they may be combatants. And prosecuting them could require the release of detrimental information. And releasing them might result in having to face them on the battlefield again.

Shocking, I know. But plenty of people just can't see that possibilitylikelihood.
