Before deciding to threaten America's very existence by closing down the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, president-elect Barack Obama was just another cool, sunglasses wearing college kid trying to find his place in the world.
That place, as it turns out, is in the White House Oval Office, where one of Barry's first duties as President will be to order the closing of Guantanamo Bay, where the U.S. keeps suspected terrorists nice and cozy and occasionally strapped to a waterboard while they wait (and wait...) for charges to be brought against them. Or not.
Part of Obama's challenge in closing down the prison will be to figure out what to do with the estimated 250 al-Qaeda and Taliban suspects and potential witnesses currently being held at Guantanamo. But that shouldn't be too difficult.
I'll have to double-check with George and Laura, but I'm pretty sure Crawford Ranch is free on weekdays. From what I've heard, they're even looking for a few good men to help handle ranching duties.
