U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said the Obama administration is doing everything it can to shut down the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, before the 2012 presidential elections. Speaking Tuesday at the European Parliament, Holder said the administration is focused on closing the controversial facility “as quickly as possible, recognizing that we will face substantial pressure,” The Associated Press reports. He added that the effort to shutter the detention facility would continue even after the 2012 elections if they can’t shut it down before then. “We will be pressing for the closure of the facility between now and then—and after that election, we will try to close it as well,” Holder said. “Some people have made this a political issue without looking at, I think, the real benefits that would flow from the closure of the facility.”
IMO this is the type of thing that the media should be talking about, and all of the other petty stories like Casey Anthony or the satellite that's falling to Earth are there to keep the blinders on and keep people from seeing what's going on in the world.
my opinion just another poltical stunt to get the people talking about this and not looking at what else is going on at the moment.
