Shell Game: Shut Down Guantanamo, Send Them To Illinois
Yay. Good for Obama. He's shutting down Guantanamo!
But the problem was never the location.
Move 'em to Illinois, New Mexico, Texas, Alaska, do what you will.
They are still 'detainees', in prison, never having had the opportunity of trial by jury, no matter where you put them.
Obama says he's going to make sure they get their day in court. That's the change that matters.
Otherwise these surface changes are not Hope and Change, it's still hope for change.
