No Closure On Gitmo

It was supposed to be closed come the end of the year, but it now seems that moves to transfer detainees away from Guantánamo Bay have been slowed, as the New York Times has reported.

The closure of “Gitmo” was pledged by Barack Obama, and with mid-term elections next year, there will be no shortage of opponents ready to highlight it. That is, of course, when they’re not acquiescing in the continuing abuse directed at the Prez: one GOP candidate, noted here, declining to take to task one attendee at a voter event who asserted that Obama was a Muslim.
