Britain tells US: we don't want our Guantánamo nine back

With a tip of the hat to Captain's Quarters, the Guardian Unlimited is reporting that the British government has been offered the return of nine 'Camp Gitmo' prisoners. Apparently, the response has been "Thanks, but no thanks."
"The United States has offered to return nearly all British residents held at Guantánamo Bay after months of secret talks in Washington, the Guardian has learned.

The British government has refused to accept the men, however, with senior officials saying they have no legal right to return. Documents obtained by the Guardian show US authorities are demanding that the detainees be kept under 24-hour surveillance if set free - restrictions that are dismissed by the British as unnecessary and unworkable."
