The Gitmo Catch-22

As a former top Bush administration official told me today for a related print story, if the U.S. Congress refuses to accept a single Gitmo detainee on American soil, even in a Supermax prison, how are we supposed to convince our European allies to do the same thing? If the detainees are harmless we should take some. If they're terrifying then what rational government would?
