Imprisonment Is Freedom  
At a press conference today, Senator Harry Reid explained why imprisonment requires release:

REID: I'm saying that the United States Senate, Democrats and Republicans, do not want terrorists to be released in the United States. That’s very clear.
QUESTION: No one's talking about releasing them. We’re talking about putting them in prison somewhere in the United States.
REID: Can't put them in prison unless you release them.
QUESTION: Sir, are you going to clarify that a little bit?

 


Good question.

Clearly, Reid (not a very strong thinker, and exactly the wrong person to be Majority Leader) meant "can't put them in a US-based prison without releasing them from Guantanamo Bay". Still, it would be nice if he could communicate, and even nicer if he would stand down from his post.
