  • What's Obama's new date for closing it? Or has he stopped making this promise?

  • It hasn't closed.....because it is still filled with really really bad guys.

  • I hope he doesn't. Closing it is just stupid.

  • It's a boondoggle. Sounds good, looks good on paper, but nobody wants to be responsible for the possible ramifications of it.

  • Because the Obama administration wants the "glory" of ordering it closed without the ramifications of closing it reflecting on their watch, so they're stalling so as to make it the next administrations problem.

  • Because we can't figure out what to do with the people we are holding there.

  • No date now, they don't know what to do with these guys no one wants.

  • Because if we closet Gitmo,there will be even more 'criminal's in this country than there are now.
