McConnell: An Opportunity For (More) Flexibility

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell casts President Obama's speech this morning as an opportunity for flexibility on Guantanamo--noting that Obama has moved on other national-security-related issues of late. From Senate floor remarks this morning:

If he isn't able to provide specifics about his plan for terrorist detainees at Guantanamo, he could still provide this assurance by simply revising his policy.  The President has shown adaptability on military commissions, prisoner photos, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.  Here's an opportunity to show more of that flexibility on Guantanamo.
