European Countries May Offer Guantanamo Possibilities

Hosted by

Barack Obama has promised repeatedly to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay, but won't discuss what to do with the prisoners until he becomes president on January 20, 2009. Meantime, it's reported by some European governments are doing something for him they refused to do for George Bush, discuss whether to take prisoners who can't go home from Guantánamo because they're likely to be tortured in their home countries. Charles Kupchan is a former director for European Affairs at the National Security Council staffer during the first Clinton Administration.
