Enemy Combatant Sent Home to the U.K.

Military Families United, a group that wants to keep enemy combatants locked up in Guanatanamo Bay, produced the following video after the U.S. released British resident Binyam Mohamed, the first detainee to be freed since President Obama signed an order to close down the prison:Following his visit to Gitmo this week, Attorney General Holder said that the the detention center is "a well-run, professional facility that will be difficult to close," but the administration nonetheless still intends on shutting it down. Many feel that the administration erred by announcing it would close the base before the Pentagon completed its review of the facility, a review that found the prison met Geneva Convention standards.

Update: Does Holder have a conflict of interest?
