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

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:
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.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.
