THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that during an interview that was taped today and will be aired later this afternoon on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered", Senator Joe Lieberman says that President Obama should seriously consider keeping the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay open.

Earlier today, the Washington Post reported that the administration has given up on trying to resettle any detainees in the United States.
