    Just a little idea, but seems kind of shady that the prison is closing right before the Bush administration leaves office, hmmm, covering a criminals tracks i guess. But overall good news.

    Its part of a "smooth" transfer, its not ordered by Bush.. I don't think.. Its an initiative of Obama whom will also use Robert Gate as defense minister.

    Hopefully the closure plan doesn't include shredding documents.

    I agree that were winning, but the need for that facility or its tactics was never there.
