Reports Reignite Guantanamo, Cheney Criticisms

The White House found itself facing new questions about two longstanding controversies — the prison at Guantanamo Bay and the penchant for secrecy in the office of Vice President Dick Cheney.

On Guantanamo, the White House is looking for ways to close the facility but canceled a meeting about it after word leaked to the media.

Congressional Democrats are blasting Vice President Cheney after a report Thursday that he tried to abolish an office of the National Archives that oversees classified documents.
