    An unidentified White House official said "the prior administration had a policy that the detainees that are currently being released were a threat.

    This administration is willing to take a higher level of risk."

    Slowly but surely numerous detainees are going back to their home countries.

    Is Obama attempting to empty GITMO while everyone is paying attention to health care?

    I've looked all over the net and can't find one recent story on who has been released even though some of the guys I know that are in the military say that close to 70 of them have been released in the last month.

    One of the sticking points was assurances from their home country that they would be treated humainly. The biggest problem wasn't that they would go back to killing Americans but that they wouldn't be tortured and killed once they got back home.

    Oh yes. We must get our priorities in order doncha know. Its okay to kill Americans agaiin but lets make sure the home countries don't torture these dirtbags. Jeeze.

    I wonder how many will end up in Gitmo North???

    Ol"BO is nuts. Gitmo was the perfect place for these dirtbags and he is closing it just so he can make good on at least one of his campaign promises. The no more lobbyists, no more earmarks and open and transparant Govt promises seem to pale beside the all important closing of Gitmo. Gotta love it

    How can you have a show trial meant to embarass the Bush Administration if you can't get the press in to report it?

    It will be interesting how this philosophy applies to health care.

    What makes you think stuff like that needs to be public information? Some things are highly classified and need to stay that way.

    Looks like Barry's promise for closing Gitmo in January 2010 won't be happening....

    The detainees are not patriots who want smaller government , lower taxes and secure borders, they are not a threat o the administration .They should be released to make room for the real threats.

    What happens to GITMO detainees is not classified.
