    I believe we might even have courts.

    •  True... (3+ / 0-)

      But, some kind of process is going to have to be established to send these cases to the current court system; there currently isn't one. A lot of people (a) took for granted that the Gitmo process might stand without question or (b) if a "plan B" to Gitmo were to be attempted by anyone, they'd meet the same fate as those US attorneys. Closing Gitmo is going to be complicated, but I'm confident that Mr. Obama will do it right after a lot of careful thought & consideration - unlike the current crappy crop in the White House who chose to run rough - shod over civil liberties & that darn Constitution.

        Due process is however.

        The bulk could be sent home tomorrow.

        There are only a few that may be a potential threat.

        They would be easily watched, put them up in the Waldorf

        ;)
