Quotes:
“What to do with the detainees may present harder questions. There are probably people we could have convicted in federal court whom we now can’t prosecute because we tortured them, and figuring out how to handle those cases is going to be hard. But there’s no reason to keep anyone in Guantanamo anymore.”
