Over 80 people are being held in  Guantanamo after being cleared of any terrorist involvement. This is unconscionable.

Mr. President, Let These People Go.
If we cannot release them into their own countries, then they should be released into the United States. That, after all, is the full implication of Colin Powell's dictum: "If you broke it, you own it." We have broken these people and are continuing to do so. It is time to stop.
As for those who are awaiting trial, the President should defy Congress -- just as it defies the President -- and bring them all to the United States for trial in our Courts, which are well capable of providing a fair trial.
Mr Obama should have done this on the first day of his Presidency, but better now than further delay.
