No recollection of that
Today I read in the Contra Costa Times that President Bush said Thursday that he would like to close the Guantanamo Bay prison but can't because other nations refuse to repatriate suspected terrorists the U.S. wants to send back. Oh sure, this is believable. The U.S. captures thousands of so-called 'enemy combatants,' refuses to afford them the benefits of the Geneva Convention, refuses to give them access to the courts and, in the final analysis, blames it on their original countries. Sure, I get it. It's just more unconstitutional rhetoric from the masters at the Bush White House.
