    Congress usually takes more than a year to get around to passing agreements like this.  Plenty of time to read the agreement, but I think I'd fall asleep after the first page.

      If you couldn't bother to read past the 1st page.
      And it is being fast tracked so it will not take a year v

      Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names? SORRY FOR THE TYPOS :)

        Give it a try sometime.  Let me know how far you get with this one.

        Fast Track means that it gets passed through Congress without amendments, not that it gets on the legislative calendar quickly.  It might get passed soon after being signed, no reason it wouldn't, but Congress passes things whenever it feels like it.
