Sec. Gates and Guantanamo

Gates is saying that we need legislation to close Guantanamo (bullshit) and to keep the men from being released to the US (bigger bullshit). We don't need any legislation. Men that are found innocent by the courts should be allowed into the US... the fact that they were kidnapped by us and have no where else to go is not their fault. And how can we look any country in the eye and suggest that they take some of the men when we refuse to take any?
Is this a trial balloon from the Obama Camp or a last gasp from the Bush camp? I sure do not know but it worries me.

Funny, we didn't need legislation to OPEN Guantanamo or to move certain prisoners to solitary...

Legislation in the current Congress seems to have been all about rubber-stamping the administration's orders. Hope the next Congress doesn't pick up where the last one left off.
