Put Them in Hyde Park, IL

New folks for Mr. Obama's Neighborhood. I'm sure Bill Ayers will be happy to put them up for a few years.

During his news conference, Blair also said the Obama administration is still wrestling with what to do with the remaining 240 detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, which the president has ordered closed.

Some of the detainees, deemed non-threatening, may be released into the United States as free men, Blair confirmed.

That would happen when they can't be returned to their home countries, because the governments either won't take them or the U.S. fears they will be abused or tortured. That is the case with 17 Uighers (WEE'-gurz)...

Blair said the former prisoners would have get some sort of assistance to start their new lives in the United States.

"We can't put them out on the street," he said.

When they arrive in Hyde Park, they will be registered as voters, too.

When they're not welcome in their home countries, shouldn't that be a clue? Of course it would be, if someone actually thought logically for a moment!

Put them in Oakland, CA. They'll fit right in.
