“In an unusual face-off in front of the president [Bush] at a National Security Council meeting in August 2006, [Secretary of State Condoleezza] Rice argued that the CIA prisons should be closed and [Vice President Dick] Cheney argued that they should not. Rice won–Bush effectively closed the prisons weeks later–but so far the president has rejected her arguments to shut down Guantanamo, which Cheney has said should stay open.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
