Switzerland Offers to Clean Up America's Mess

This should embarrass all of those personal-responsibility fetishizing Cons:

In an important development, Switzerland now says it may be willing to take some of the detainees from Guantanamo Bay once they are released.

Switzerland is ready to consider taking in detainees from the U.S. prison for terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba if that helps to shut it down, the Swiss government said on Wednesday.

"For Switzerland, the detention of people in Guantanamo is in conflict with international law. Switzerland is ready to consider how it can contribute to the solution of the Guantanamo problem," the government said in a statement.

Contrast the Swiss maturity with America's Cons throwing hysterical fits over the idea of transferring detainees into supermax prisons on American soil. It's a wonder the world has any respect left for us at all.
