Hillary Asks Spain to Take Some Guantanamo Detainees
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with the Foreign Minister of Spain and asked him to help the U.S. by accepting some released Guantanamo detainees:
Mr Moratinos said Mrs Clinton had asked him for "help in solving this drama, this unacceptable tragedy of the prisoners at Guantanamo".
"We are prepared to cooperate. Our teams will make contact to legally study each case on a case by case basis," he told Spanish media.
Mr Moratinos said the meeting with Mrs Clinton heralded "a new stage in relations between the United States and Spain is opening that is more intense, more productive".
Well done. It's been too long since we had an effective Secretary of State.
