    Europe Objects Anew to Detainees
    BERLIN, May 28 -- The Obama administration's push to resettle at least 50 Guantanamo Bay prisoners in Europe is meeting fresh resistance as European officials demand that the United States first give asylum to some inmates before they will do the same.

    Snipped from the article,
    This is the epitome of the Obama campaign/administration, talk a big game, but no plans to execute it.

    Really, we may as well send them there. That's where we'll find them later anyway.

    Sure he has, they complained about Mr Bush's massive deficit spending (and rightly so), and Mr Obama has changed that, it's now massive times 8.

    Why can't a President who has given our country such higher standing in the world convince them to do the right thing and take some of these prisoners?

    Exactly how do we measure this "higher standing in the world?"

    Maybe the government should auction them off on Ebay. Could you imagine the money?
