Obama On Closing Gitmo: ‘I’m Going To Go Back At This’
It is lame simply to blame him for not closing GITMO, but he is part of the problem. The hunger strike was raised in today's press conference. Will anything get done? Update: See here. I realize Obama is playing with a bad deck but if he can play with the rules by supporting an invasion in Libya, I think there is room here, including perhaps forcing the point with a certain detainee and seeing what Congress does. This is one of those special situations like Lincoln at the start of the Civil War.
