Asking the Hard Question About "Detainees"
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Saturday she looks forward to the day when the United States can shut down its prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, but she gave no timetable.But her response raises a bigger question: just what are we going to do with the 3Ms (Murderous Muslim Moonbats) imprisioned there? Assuming the court battles all come to an end and every last military tribunal is completed, then what? Hold them in U.S. prisons? Release them with time served? Or send them to the gallows, or its PC equivalent?
The prison will not remain open "any longer than is needed," Rice said at a news conference with British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, her host for a two-day visit meant to be a chummy look at ordinary life outside the capital of Washington's closest ally.
How big is the problem? It's potentially very, very big, because almost 500 people currently fill the camp. My guess is that someone is hoping to pass that buck to the next administration, but it's a question that has to be answered sooner or later.
