Big news from Jim Webb today.

If Sen. Webb’s any indication, the president is running into more trouble with his own party on his plans to close down Guantanamo. Despite his support earlier this year for the president’s policy, Webb, D-Va., said today on "This Week" that no detainee, including the 17 Uighurs, should come to the U.S. He also said that Guantanamo should not be closed on the current timeline.
