Still, Obama did promise to bring some detainees stateside for a trail, and the first one arrived yesterday in New York. Ahmed Ghailani, a 35-year-old Tanzanian, is charged with 268 counts related to supporting Al-Qaeda.
Hysteria, naturally, ensued. "This is the first step in the Democrats' plan to import terrorists to the United States," said House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio.
But wait, John Boehner! The Democrats' nefarious scheme also includes a plan to destroy Palau -- poor, poor tiny Palau -- with its 20,000 noble citizens in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
The mini-state, which has existed only since 1994, has apparently agreed to take 17 Chinese ethnic Uighers, who've been held in a separate camp at Gitmo since the courts cleared them of any wrongdoing.
"This is but a small thing we can do to thank our best friend and ally for all it has done for Palau," says President Johnson Toribiong, sounding pretty unconcerned about the terrorists coming to his back yard.
Palau's chief industry appears to be government work supported by U.S. aid, incidentally.
