Obama Administration Contemplating How to Deal with Terrorism Suspects

A lot of folks breathed a sigh of relief when Barack Obama was elected President of the United States, especially those folks detained at Guantanamo Bay (aka Gitmo), since he said he'd close the military prison.

But now, he's in a pickle because he cannot just release them, can he?

So he's doing what any politician does: He's talking about it!
As part of its plans to close Guantanamo Bay, the Obama administration is considering holding some of the detainees indefinitely and without trial on US soil, US media reported Thursday.

How is this any different than just keeping Gitmo open? Moving the pieces doesn't change the game, does it?
