Obama: Some Guantanamo prisoners to go to U.S.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Thursday some terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo would be sent to U.S. prisons despite strong congressional opposition, as he defended his plan to close the internationally condemned detention center.

In an extraordinary counterpoint to Obama's speech, former Vice President Dick Cheney said the president's reversals of Bush-era detainee policy amounted to "recklessness cloaked in righteousness and would make the American people less safe."

I just read this article. I live in Canada so my thoughts may not be as strong, but for those living in the United States how do you feel about this? Obama declaired on his first day at office that he would close down Guantanamo within a year and people feared where these prisoners would end up outside of Cuba. I don't think the article explains just how many of the prisoners would end up on US soil however.
