Obama to Sign Executive Order Closing Guantanomo Bay

It seems my fears of an Obama presidency were completely unfounded. Showing that he is a take charge decision maker, Pres. Obama has decided that the problem that needed his attention first was the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. Yep, I figured that was the problem most affecting me and most people I know. I will now sleep better knowing that we have a president at the helm that knows how to prioritize.

I would've immediately focused on the depression that is gripping this country as well as most of the world but what the hell do I know? Maybe I would've even given some thought to Iraq and Afghanistan before Gitmo.

The question I want answered about the detainees at Gitmo is what do we do with them when we release them? Their native countries have declared that they will not allow them back home. So where do they go? If you guessed America, you are right. That's just fooking beautiful. Way to go Barry, I feel safer already.

This is the problem with taking prisoners. It always bothered me when Bush said he will bring them to justice. Why ?
