    Because American prisons have much better living conditions, and a civilian guard would never rough up an inmate.

    Still planning on detaining some without EVER holding a trial. A change in location, but Amnesty International is already crying foul. Meet the new boss same as the old boss.

    The US citizens operating the prison in Cuba will not vote a straight Democrat ballot.

    The US citizens operating the prison in Illinois will vote a straight Democrat ballot.

    No Brainer.

    You mean other than AI thinks governments care what AI thinks?

    “The only thing that President Obama is doing with this announcement is changing the zip code of Guantánamo,” Tom Parker, Amnesty International USA policy director, said. “The detainees who are currently scheduled to be relocated to Thomson have not been charged with any crime. In seven years, the U.S. government, including the C.I.A. and F.B.I., have not produced any evidence against these individuals that can be taken into a court of law.”

    My God people. None of you get it? I don't believe it. How else can Obama make sure that his first official act comes off in time. He did sign the executive order 11 months ago. He's got one month left to get Gitmo closed. And he can't blame it on Bush. He's got to do something......
