"Until President Barack Obama can outline exactly how he plans to close the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, suspected terrorists will remain imprisoned there, lawmakers and the president's top military adviser said Sunday. Senators from both parties and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, pressed Obama for details on how he intends to fulfill his promise to close the detention facility that houses 240 suspected terrorists. . . . FBI Director (Robert) Mueller . . . told Congress it would be risky to relocate Guantánamo prisoners to U.S. facilities, giving House and Senate Democrats an opening to oppose Obama's request for $81 million to close Guantánamo without a detailed accounting of where the detainees will go."

Asking for $81 million to do something before you have a plan to do it is simply incompetent.
