This exchange between Republican Senator James Inhofe and Deborah Solomon in the Sunday NYT magazine is priceless. Inhofe: Can you tell me one reason to close Gitmo? NYT: Because it's on foreign soil, where prisoners don't have the same legal rights as prisoners tried here, and we want to apply the same laws to everybody. Inhofe: You want to apply the same laws to terrorists that are captured as you do to criminals in America?

NYT: Yes.

Inhofe: Wow.

NYT: Because we have to take the high road as Americans.

Inhofe: I see. That's an interesting concept.
