    U.S. Pleads for Europe to Take Gitmo Detainees

    BERLIN -- After privately asking European officials to take some freed Guantanamo Bay inmates, the U.S. Attorney General is making a public appeal for help in closing a detention facility for terrorism suspects that has been widely condemned abroad.

    French President Nicolas Sarkozy already has made what was billed as a symbolic gesture of agreeing to take one Guantanamo detainee.

    You gottalove the hat in hand will you please help us out of this mess tour that Holder is on.

    Kudos to Sarkozy and his symbolic gesture, 1 down, 239 to go. Perhaps this would be a good time for Obama to test his new friendships with Raul & Hugo.

    I particularly liked this ditty:

    Currently, about 240 inmates are still held at Guantanamo. By one measure, as many as 60 may not be sent back to their home countries because of concerns they could be mistreated.
    These folks are supposedly being tortured at Gitmo, but are being kept at Gitmo because it's a safer alternative than sending them to their home countries.

    Why don't they just dump them out of a plane over the Afghan mountains? Animals should be freed back into their natural environment.

    REALITY is Obama's and the Democrats worst enemy. It is so easy to proclaim things, quite another matter to actually deal with the issues.

    Exactly. Now that enhanced interrogation techniques are outlawed, Gitmo is a safe place to house these folks until they can be tried, exonerated and/or freed.

    No need to move them now.

    Why dont we just stick them in super max prisons, its a guarantee that they will be shanked within weeks of them being there.

    No one wants them. Virginia has legislation in the works:

    Reps. Randy Forbes of Chesapeake, Eric Cantor of Henrico County and Frank Wolf of Fairfax County said they want Congress to pre-empt any effort to move prisoners now at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to facilities in Virginia.

    Legislation aims to shut state's door to Gitmo inmates | HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com

    My question still stands, why move them if enhanced interrogation techniques are now outlawed?

    I always did think Euro leftists were smarter than our garden variety here in the states.
