Obama Lied?

A few days after he took office he signed an official order. The order authorized: "The detention facilities at Guantánamo for individuals covered by this order shall be closed as soon as practicable, and no later than one year from the date of this order".

  • I don't think he really lied....he just was not smart enough to know better!

  • Doesn't sound like a lie, it just sounds like poor execution of an order.

  • Yeah, executive orders aren't really worth the paper they are written on.

  • A lie? No. I just think he has no idea how long it takes to get things done. And maybe thinks a little too much about what he can actually accomplish.

  • This just shows how inexperienced he was (and questionablly still is)... This is an example of chasing a fools errand.

  • Bush said there were WOMD. That's a hell of a lot worse then expecting a time line to work out. Plus O's got bigger problems, like the economy to deal with. Find some other way to instigate the masses.

  • Bush said there were WOMD.

    Well according to documents released by Wikileaks there were weapons of mass destruction found all over the place. He lied in his book and to us all when he said they hadn't found anything. Might have been so things were not escalated overseas so he threw himself under the bus who knows. Obama didn't lie he just had no clue of all the information about Gitmo, the war and many other things until he took over. Probably why we don't hear him bash Bush all that often anymore.

  • And you're shocked??? They all lie to get votes and mysteriously realized they didn't have the ability or the true desire or that they made foolish promises without knowing the whole story.

  • Bush said there were WOMD.

    EVERYBODY said there were WMD's, and nobody has really shown that there weren't, just that they weren't there by the time we got there.

    And I don't think Obama lied, but he certainly shows his inexperience to think that it could happen in a year!
