did they move the correct scary ones?

Q Robert, former President George Bush gave a speech yesterday where he talked about Guantanamo Bay and the President's policy, and he said, "Therapy is not going to cause terrorists to change their minds." What is the President's reaction to that?

MR. GIBBS: Is he talking -- I don't -- I'm not sure what he's discussing.

Q I think he's trying to suggest that the President's policy on Guantanamo Bay is not the right policy and saying -- comparing it to therapy, that we're treating the prisoners --

MR. GIBBS: I don't know what he's discussing. I know that -- I know the previous administration moved or transferred hundreds of detainees at Guantanamo to a program in Saudi Arabia. I don't know if that's what he's -- maybe that's not what he's referring to, since it appears to be contrary to the actions that he took. So I'm happy if he can clarify what it is he was talking about.

Is outsourcing the torturing of persons to Saudi Arabia now a form of therapy in HappyLand?

{ Yes, I am more than willing to concede that whitehouse.gov is not a reliable source. }
