On one side of his mouth Obama says, he is closing Gitmo, but then out of the other side...

Obama states he Plans to Hold Military Tribunals at Guantanamo...

Do you think Gitmo will really close in January?
What is your opinion of the tribunals?

The Obama administration won't say which of the 241 detainees at the prison in Cuba will be tried before the commission.
But experts say it will be almost impossible to conduct commissions there before its scheduled closure.
"There is no way in hell that they're going to get these commissions done by January of next year unless, for some odd reason, somebody decides to plead guilty," Charles "Cully" Stimson of the Heritage Foundation

  • I think I love you today grly
    Yes, the onset of military tribunals will undoubtedly cause the closure of Gitmo to be delayed.
    But hey, he kept a promise, he signed legistation closing Gitmo, legislation that purposely left the open loophole which allows it to remain open in the event of military tribunals and the facility to remain open until such court cases are finished. That might be around 2012?
    Stop listening to Obama and start watching what he does.
