All weekend long, Team Obama’s intel folks refused to say that the White House would stop Gitmo transfers to Yemen.
Looks like someone woke up and decided to stick a foot in the jihadi revolving door.
For the moment, anyway:
U.S. suspends Guantanamo prisoner transfer to Yemen…
“While we remain committed to closing the (Guantanamo) facility, a determination has been made right now — any additional transfers to Yemen is not a good idea,” said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.

Update 4:52pm Eastern. President Obama is rushing through another half-hearted, perfunctory, hasty statement on homeland security after meeting with officials on the Crotch Bomber case. He flubbed Abdulmutallab’s name twice and issued one of his classic “Let me be clear” flip-flops — stating that Gitmo will be shut down, but that Yemeni Gitmo detainees will not be sent back to Yemen for now (contradicting his intel people over the weekend). Just later.
