A Simple Question for Simple Minds

Charles asks his readers to vote on what should happen to the Gitmo inmates, and gives them three options:

1) Release them to their home countries
2) Try them in the US criminal justice system
3) House them in a tent city on the White House lawn

As even the dumbest Republicon should know by now, it's not that simple. What should, and likely will, happen is that the inmates will be divided into three groups:

1) Those who will be charged, who will either face some sort off extraterritorial court or be transferred to the US for trial

2) Those who won't be charged and will therefore be released. They will either be a) sent home or b) sent to a third country because they face persecution at home but the US won't have them.

Camping out on the White House lawn is not an option. But you wouldn't expect someone like Charles to get that.

McCain made, essentially, the exact same promises regarding the phasing out and closing down of the detention system at the base. With that in mind, one has to wonder if, had McCain won, Charles would have posted a similar item. I seriously doubt it.
