LMAO...France Floating Proposal for Europe to Take Some Guantanamo Detainees

Quote:
President Obama's plan to close the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba has set off a frenzy of speculation over what will happen to the 245 detainees at the prison.

The Obama administration, according to executive orders Obama signed this week, intends to devise its own policies on how to handle existing and future detainees — but that hasn't stopped the world community from adding its two cents on the question.

Malaysia said Saturday that two of its citizens are being held at Guantanamo, and it would be willing to take the terror suspects back if the facility is closed.

And France is pushing for European Union countries to take 60 of the detainees deemed innocent but at risk of torture in their home country, according to a report by the German magazine Der Spiegel that was picked up by Reuters.

European governments have been among the loudest voices calling for the closure of the prison at Guantanamo over allegations of human rights abuses there, but the foreign ministry in Paris refused to comment on the Der Spiegel report, according to Reuters.

The report says that France has submitted its proposal to leaders across Europe ahead of a Monday meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels.
