    Let's say this is true and they do move all the prisoners, how will holding them in America effect Obama's policy of indefinite detention? What will it mean to KSM?

    Guantanamo Inmates Could Be Moved To US Jails

    The Guantanamo Bay detention centre could be closed and the 166 inmates could be sent to prisons in the US, according to a new government report.

    "This report demonstrates that if the political will exists, we could finally close Guantanamo without imperilling our national security," said Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman who released the recommendations.

    The Government Accountability Office study shows that US prisons already hold 373 prisoners convicted of terrorism in 98 facilities across the country.

    "As far as I know, there hasn't been a single security problem reported in any of these cases," Senator Feinstein said.

    "This fact outweighs not only the high cost of maintaining Guantanamo - which costs more than $114m a year - but also provides the same degree of security without the criticism of operating a military prison in an isolated location."

    Any actions Obama takes is usually to the detriment of the nation.

    Don't worry. The GOP will kill it again so they can continue blaming Obama for not doing what he promised in regards to GITMO. They're convinced the suckers will continue to swallow it.

    Treat a criminal like a criminal. Put him on trial, produce the evidence of his crimes, and if found guilty, sentence him.

    What's the big deal?

    Conservatives only want justice for conservatives.

    The big deal is that the GOP doesn't want them to have their day in open court because their lawyers will want to talk about torture....excuse me....I mean "enhanced interrogation."

    And THAT could spell serious international legal problems for George Bush, Alberto Gonzales, Donald Rumsfeld, John Yoo and Jay Bybee, among others.
