There was no support from the EU. Now the administration is asking for EU assistance. We arrested and tortured detainees while holding them for years without any due process. The administration has now asked the EU to take some of these detainees. These were problems of our own making. We violated international law regarding Guantanamo and other prisons. We abandoned Afghanistan once the Soviets were defeated. That was our mistake too. We are responsible as a nation to clean up the mess’ we’ve made. I can see why even so eloquent a leader as our President has received such a cool response to his requests.
