Plan to close Gitmo delayed

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

News Story:

Plans to close the prison in Guantanamo Bay Cuba are being delayed by the Senate.  The Senate will not pass a bill to pay for the operation without a clear plan for what will happen to the detainees there after closing the facility.  Senators refuse to allow the prisoners to come to the US, and it is unlikely that other countries will admit them into their countries either.  Senators are criticizing President Obama for bringing the bill before them without all details worked out in advance.

Commentary:

I think the majority of Americans would approve of this, as it would be a large threat to National security to have these terrorists on US soil.
