This, I Can Believe

I typically assume that every word coming out of the Bush White House is a lie, and I have been right more often than not. But I think I have to make an exception this time:

The White House yesterday denied a report that President Bush will imminently move to close the Guantanamo Bay terror prison in Cuba.

The Associated Press reported that the White House had summoned security chiefs to a meeting today to make a plan, but officials involved in Gitmo matters told the Daily News they were unaware of the gathering.

A National Security Council spokesman said Bush wants to close Camp Delta, but not before military tribunals convene and most detainees are repatriated to their home countries.

“No decisions on the future of Guantanamo Bay are imminent and there will not be a White House meeting [today],” NSC spokesman Gordon Johndroe said.

It’s like a little kid saying he’ll give up candy when the world runs out of chocolate…

    I’ve never understood the need to keep Gitmo open. Closing it would be a great PR gimmick and all the “enemy combatants” could just as easily be tortured at one of the many (hundreds?) of secret prisons Bushco has around the world.

    Or just send them home to be tortured and killed.

    Hey, its a win-win situation.
