WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) - In a plan that would solve the thorny problem of where to transfer the detainees currently held at Guantanamo, Attorney General Eric Holder said today that the enemy combatants would be transferred immediately to a Department of Motor Vehicles office in Manhattan.

While Mr. Holder did not indicate how long the detainees might be held there, he did say that the DMV "is capable of detaining them indefinitely."

But the Attorney General's plan may have already hit a roadblock as human rights organizations have howled in protest at the move.

"Detaining prisoners at the Department of Motor Vehicles, especially in Manhattan, is a clear violation of the Geneva Conventions," said a spokesperson for Amnesty International.
