    Forgive my ignorance if I'm wrong but should it not have been closed down by now? Is it still there because theres nowhere to put the prisoners or is there something the public doesnt know about which might explain why Obama hasnt closed it yet..

    On the first day of his Presidency OL'BO made the mistake of saying he would close Gitmo. He even gave a timetable. Nice photo op.

    Problem is that once he was the Prez he had no policy in place to move the detainees many of whom are so dangerous that they can never be released. He has no place better than Gitmo to put them. I think reality reached up and bit him in the ass. LOL

    Gitmo shouldn't be closed at all. Its the perfect place for the detainees.

    It took Barry Boy 18 months to figure that out. LOL

    The problem is that Bush fucked up the cases against every Guantanamo prisoner. They have been denied representation, a right to face their accusors, right to a speedy trial, subjected to torture and now can't be fairly tried.
    Nobody else will take them

    Once again, Republicans have created a problem Democrats can't fix

    US citizens are against closing of Guantanamo.

    Closing Guantánamo Fades as a Priority - NYTimes.com
    Moral fail by 60% of Americans, political fail by Obama.

    The WSJ had a great article today basically declaring Obama a dud, an empty suit.
