One of the lessons of AA (see below) is to beware of the Geographic Solution to problems we face. The Geographic Solution is when someone tries to solve a problem by physically leaving a situation (take a new job, move to different city, find a new spouse, etc.) when the real problem lies within the person making the move. Only by identifying and solving the basic problem can a true solution be found.
I was reminded of the Geographic Solution this morning when I heard this report on Morning Edition. It is surprisingly conservative and Bush-administration-friendly compared to many NPR reports. I had read this article by Heather MacDonald at NRO Online yesterday, and it seemes true that the sins of Gitmo are self-fulfilling prophecies. If Guantanamo were closed, administration critics would just carp about some other prison somewhere else. It's not the prison they are concerned about, it is the Bush Administration.
