U.S. considers closing Guantánamo
Even if you don't think anything untoward is going on in Guantanamo surely it's apparent to everyone by now that it's become an international embarrasment for this country. Which is a nice way of saying it's causing us more problems than it's solving.
I'm just a little surprised by this news, coming as does so soon after Rumsfeld and Cheney both said it would remian open. Gonzales strikes me as pretty much a company man, so if he's making a speech contrary to previously stated administration policy I have to believe that must mirror a shift in that policy.
Worth keeping an eye on, anyway...
