Just to remind folks that this place is still open with no sign of anything changing, despite Barrak Obama promising to close it.

Another fail from this failure of a President.

I guess one good example of a failure for a President, falls on deaf ears. Atleast we acknowledge a complete waste of a good suit!

So much irony here.

The US holds economic sanctions against Cuba. The people suffer in trade.

The US leases the base, there in Cuba, from Cuba. Other people suffer.

The corporation called America laughs at Americans everyday and we continue to bleed Red, White and Blue for them.

As one of his very first acts as president, Mr. Obama signed an executive order to close the military prison for terror suspects within a year.

They are having issue on where to put them overall. I personally think if you cannot prosecute them, well, then you can't prosecute them. put them back in afhganistan under house arrest until the war is over then let them be. Just because someone is anti-american doesn't mean they should be locked up for life for the hell of it.

The big arms up in the air is coming from the right saying the gitmo kids are too scary to bring over to the US.

As far as fulfilling campaign promises. He has moved on or fulfilled 85% so far. Not bad actually for the first half.

(and yes, something pushed but filibustered = still promise kept..such as DREAM)

I was reading about this only a few days ago about how it was his first act as president to sign a executive directive to have the camp closed within a year. The article was saying that it’s not a lack of will from Obama rather it is that he underestimated the problem of safely relocating the prisoners, putting them on trill and republicans blocking moves to move them to American prisons. Then there is the problem of the prisoners native states either refusing to take prisoners or America cant hand them over because of human rights abuses and because he can’t put them on trial (for whatever reason) and can’t put them in American prisons the camp has to stay open.

Well thats the key. Republicans block and filibuster on one end, then send in brainwashed trolls to say it was never done to begin with.
all politics..moving on then.
