    The US is preventing other countries from accepting their citizens? That's clearly nonsense.

    "The House voted against lifting restrictions on moving detainees to the United States and approved an amendment that prevents the president from using funds to return some detainees to Yemen."

    What party controlled both chambers of Congress during the President's first two years in which he first tried to close Gitmo?
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    When will you address the problem that some prisoners are not welcome in their country of origin? Your statement was false and therefore not a viable solution to anything. We must deal with reality and not your misconceptions and false assumptions.

    We can force other countries to accept their citizens? Oh, I know... if we gave them flowers, cooked dinner and prepared a bath then they'd be more agreeable. That must be it.

    Damn the US for making them reject their citizens!

    that's the home country's problem
    we stick them on a plane bound for that destination
    the recipient country gets to decide how to handle them once they arrive
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    And if their country has every intention of torturing them to death, you figure that's a solution to Gitmo? Way to set things right.
