Whatever Happened to 'You Broke It, You Fix It'?

President Obama, who pledged to close the camp by January, has urged other countries to help by taking detainees for resettlement. But the idea has proved to be unpopular with America’s European allies, including those who called for the camp to be closed. In April, President Nicolas Sarkozy said France would accept one prisoner. Mr. Obama said last month that Italy agreed to take three.


And Ireland will take two.

How nice. We start a war. We round up innocent people and imprison them for years, torture some of them, kill some of them. And then, when we’re ready to let the (rightfully angry and possibly vengeful) survivors go, we insist other countries take them, because….well, we won’t.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
