U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Obama administration will do its utmost to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay before next year’s presidential elections despite political opposition.Remember when Obama said he'd close Gitmo by January 20, 2010? How's that going?
Holder said at the European Parliament that even if the current administration fails to close it ahead of elections, it will continue to press ahead if it wins the November 2012 presidential vote.
Gitmo will never close because we have place to put the really hard cases that are still in our custody. Nobody will take them and we can't just let them go.
