NIMBY (Politics)

This article by the Washington Post sure gives an interesting view of the international complaints about Guantanamo Bay prisoners.  There’s been a long, loud outcry from any number of nations including Great Britain, Germany, and of course France.

Yet none of those nations will allow prisoners we’re looking to release from Gitmo to return to their homes in those countries.  Amazing.

I’ve got my own set of objections to Gitmo (“Club Gitmo,” as Rush Limbaugh would call it), but this article certainly shows a  lovely display of the two-faced nature of politics at the international level.

(“NIMBY” stands for Not In My Back Yard, if you’re not familiar with the term.)
