At least Obama is keeping to his promise to close Guantanamo. Today's decision to move some of the prisoners kept in Cuba to Illinois must be good news. The USA has condemned these men to life imprisonment, and so it is only fair that they should serve their sentences on US soil, and not in Cuba.
It seems pretty clear that the USA has created the situation they are now in, by holding all these alleged terrorists, and it is now up to President Obama to decide what is the best way out the mess they are in. Will the Guantanamo prisoners serve their life sentences, or will they be released at some point - who knows?
