Closing Gitmo?

It is good to see that, after all, massive, sustained political pressure does work.

I can’t imagine Bush wants to close Guantanamo because he is feeling beneficent towards the detainees there. More likely, it is just not worth the stink anymore.

There is also probably some element of having worked out that nobody detained there can be proven to have actually done anything detain-worthy.

For those of you who actually believe in little things like human rights, jus cogens, rules about torture and the like, keep up the fight. Just remember that with people like Bush, it takes a while to register.
