Progressive Hopey-Changey Spit-Takes, Volume III: Gitmo Detainees Will Continue to Be Held Without Charge


Is it Bush? Is it Obama? Is it George W. Hussein Bushbama? The left must be so confused as to who the president really is as they continue to witness the foreclosure of the Hopenchange Shangri-la that was to be.

From the NY Times:

The Obama administration has decided to continue to imprison without trials nearly 50 detainees at the Guantánamo Bay military prison in Cuba because a high-level task force has concluded that they are too difficult to prosecute but too dangerous to release, an administration official said on Thursday.

However, the administration has decided that nearly 40 other detainees should be prosecuted for terrorism or related war crimes. And the remaining prisoners, about 110 men, should be repatriated or transferred to other countries for possible release, the official said, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the numbers.

You’ll notice that in the entire story, nary a word is spoken of sending the detainees to Gitmo North in Illinois. Has that plan been determined to be so unpopular that the idea has been scrapped, or are the lefties at the top of the Obama administration simply trying to keep it vacant in the event an internment camp for tea partiers becomes a necessity (those people are ruining everything — oh, and speaking of that, did you hear Barney Frank say the word “Teabaggers”?
