Socialist Leader to Open Cuban Prison, Ship Hundreds of Prisoners to USA - [Cuffy Meigs]

I have been told to prepare for a repeat of the Carter years, but this isn't exactly what I had in mind. We're screwed:

President-elect Obama's advisers are quietly crafting a proposal to ship dozens, if not hundreds, of imprisoned terrorism suspects to the United States to face criminal trials, a plan that would make good on his promise to close the Guantanamo Bay prison but could require creation of a controversial new system of justice.

But that's not good enough for Democrats:


The tougher challenge will be allaying fears by Democrats who believe the Bush administration's military commissions were a farce and dislike the idea of giving detainees anything less than the full constitutional rights normally enjoyed by everyone on U.S. soil.
...
Prosecuting all detainees in federal courts raises a host of problems. Evidence gathered through military interrogation or from intelligence sources might be thrown out. Defendants would have the right to confront witnesses, meaning undercover CIA officers or terrorist turncoats might have to take the stand, jeopardizing their cover and revealing classified intelligence tactics.

Aw, to hell with it --- just let 'em go:

Some detainees likely would be returned to the countries where they were first captured for further detention or rehabilitation.
