    Default Gitmo still a problem

    Not as easy as it appeared on the campaign trail

    Still, Congressional resistance to approving money for Thomson represents a steep hurdle toward dealing with the detainees who the administration has decided can neither be prosecuted nor safely transferred to the custody of other countries.
    Can't be prosecuted? Wonder why. Can't be safely transferred elsewhere? Wonder why.

    About 91 of the roughly 200 detainees at Guantánamo are Yemeni; many are not considered “high value” suspects, but officials have been reluctant to repatriate them because of security conditions in Yemen.
    Indeed, Mr. Waxman said, the debate is certain to set off discussions on an issue that could drive away many civil-liberties-minded Democrats who have voiced initial support for Mr. Obama’s Thomson plan: the administration’s intention to imprison some detainees on United States soil without trials. “Some members of Congress may want to support rapid closure of Guantánamo but not to signal support for broad military detention powers,” Mr. Waxman said.
    Out of sight, out of mind? If they agree or disagree with the detention powers, then it should not matter whether at Gitmo or in Illinois.

    I thought that place was shut down. Wonder what happened?
