Babs turns against Gitmo, so for sure her boy's gonnna shut it down
There's a lot of verbiage in this story from AP on Bush maybe closing Gitmo, but the nut graf is buried 24 down:
[Bush's] wife, Laura, and mother, Barbara, along with Rice and longtime adviser Karen Hughes, head of the public diplomacy office at the State Department, have told him that Guantanamo is a blot on the U.S. record abroad, particularly in the Muslim world and among European allies.
The Bush administration is nearing a decision to close the Guantanamo Bay detainee facility and move its terror suspects to military prisons elsewhere, The Associated Press has learned.
Of course, since word leaked out, Bush cancelled the meeting, but since it's not just Babs, but all of Bush's female enablers, I'd say it's a done deal.
Nice work there, Babs. Maybe your boy will give you another pearl necklace...
NOTE Too had she couldn't have gotten to W earlier on the whole torture thing. But habits tarted that young are hard to break.
