So. What is going on with Gitmo? Didn't Obama have a date to close it?

White House Counsel Gregory B. Craig is expected to announce his departure as early as Friday, people familiar with the situation said, ending an embattled tenure in which he struggled to lead the closure of the U.S. military detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Craig will be replaced by Bob Bauer, a prominent Democratic lawyer who is Obama's personal attorney.
The timing appears likely to coincide with announcements related to Guantanamo, in particular a pending decision by the Justice Department over the legal fate of some key detainees and whether Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the self-proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, will be transferred to federal court for prosecution.
Anita B. Dunn, the outgoing White House communications director and the wife of Bauer, declined comment.
