The Gulag That Obama Promised to Close is Getting a $750,000 Soccer Field

I'm in favor of keeping Club Gitmo open until the last terrorist goes to Allah, but Obama promised to close the prison within one year of taking office.  How's that going?
The Ritz Carlton of jails just got a major upgrade-- Despite all the lousy press Gitmo gets, there probably isn't a jail outside of the ones where they put Norwegian mass murders that compares to its opulence and amenities. And now TheDC's Caroline May reports that it is getting a major upgrade:

"The U.S. military is putting the finishing touches on a new soccer field for detainees at Camp 6 in Guantanamo Bay. The project has set taxpayers back $750,000, the Fox News Channel reported Tuesday."

Condé Nast Traveler's Gold List of the world's finest hotels may have to add a prison to its next edition.
Funny how closing Gitmo suddenly disappeared as a demand from the lefties that got Obama elected.
