ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Washington Times’ Stephen Dinan wrote in a Page One article on Thursday, “Congress on Wednesday signaled it won’t close the prison at Guantanamo Bay or allow any of its suspected terrorist detainees to be transferred to the U.S.” (“House acts to block closing of Gitmo”). As President Obama campaigned on a promise to close Guantanamo, his Department of Justice announced, “We strongly oppose this provision.” I suggest a compromise:

Remodel the facilities at Guantanamo, paint almost everything yellow and rename it “Camp Sunshine.” There thus would no longer be a Guantanamo issue to divert attention from our country’s major problems, and the detainees could, humanely, remain in the warm climate similar to that from which most of them came.
