No Independent Commission for Gitmo

The Bush administration has rejected the idea of creating an independent commission to investigate alleged abuse of detainees by military guards at the US prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and elsewhere.
White House spokesman Scott McClellan said the Defence Department has undertaken 10 major investigations into abuse allegations, and that system is working well.
"People are being held to account," he said, "and we think that's the way to go about this."
