Report: Guantanamo To Close

From the AP via Drudge:

WASHINGTON - The Bush administration is nearing a decision to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and move the terror suspects there to military prisons elsewhere, The Associated Press has learned.

President Bush's national security and legal advisers are expected to discuss the move at the White House on Friday and, for the first time, it appears a consensus is developing, senior administration officials said Thursday.

The advisers will consider a new proposal to shut the center and transfer detainees to one or more Defense Department facilities, including the maximum security military prison at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas, where they could face trial, said the officials. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were discussing internal deliberations.

As if the conservatives weren't mad enough at Bush over Amnesty, we get this bit of news. I guess in a way you have to give Bush credit...he does things differently. Most presidents will leave office and let the next guy turn everything they did on its head, like Bush41 and Clinton did with Reagan. I guess W figures, if you want something done right...
