It seems Barack Obama may be reconsidering his positions on closing Gitmo and coercive interrogation.
Having achieved an election victory, Obama’s supporters are now asking themselves the same questions they’ve been reluctant to consider until now. For example, were Gitmo detainees moved from Cuba to the United States, where would they be held? What if some escaped? If tried and acquitted in regular courts, would they be free to stay on American soil? If they were deported to their home countries, would they not face far worse treatment than anything they have faced in Guantanamo? To such questions, it turns out, there are no easy answers.
Things aren't so cut and dried when Obama actually has to take responsibility for his policy proposals.
