Kaine comments on trip to Gitmo

kaine new2U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, a member of the Senate Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees, released the following statement after his trip last Friday to the detention facility at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay.

“I expect the Senate to have a vigorous debate about the future of the detention facility at Guantanamo when we take up the Defense Authorizing bill in September.  In order to inform myself, I went there last Friday with Virginia Congressmen Frank Wolf, Jim Moran and Gerry Connolly.  We had a full tour and it provided necessary context for the debate ahead.  I was glad that our visit coincided with the Administration announcing the transfer of two detainees to Algeria.  I believe we need to do more to expedite such transfers and look forward to working with my colleagues on the right solutions in the days ahead.”
