I came across this news story today.
On his second full day in office, President Obama signed an executive order to close the prison within a year. Today, the date that the prison was to have been closed, the facility remains open.
While this doesn't surprise me (closing Gitmo is a tough thing to do), it does bug me how it was promises like this that got the man elected, and he hasn't fulfilled most of them. I mean, it's seeming more and more like George W. Bush and Barack Obama share the same goals: to Close Gitmo Eventually. What are your feelings?
