What he is saying is what Bush has come up aginst in trying to get rid of many prisoners. Their respective country eith r don't want them or will execute them if they get them back. Saying your going to close it and actaully doing it is another thing altogether.

Amusing to see you guys freak out when finding Obama's own AG states that we can't close Gitmo until finding a place for the terrorists.

"I'd like to end Guantanamo. I'd like it to be over with." - George Bush

So Obama appears to be following Bush's policy lead. Both want it closed and both appear to be prepared to keeping it open. Perhaps Obama just HOPES to close it.

Please post some proof that Obama has stated that keeping Guantanamo open is "the right thing to do".

Please post proof(ya know, like in FACTS) that Obama said it would stay open.....lies prove nothing.



Backpedaling doesn't cut it. PERHAPS you HOPE you'll be believed.

And I agree with Obama in that keeping it open is the right thing to do.
You are taking 'spin' to new heights....You saying this is like me telling you that this forum called City-Data doesn't really exist....Your suggestion has no legs, none.

You guys are going to need meds if getting this worked up over your man's campaign deceptions. Fact is Obama's AG nominee now states that closing Gitmo is going to take some time. . . a position identical to Bush's. I'm agreeing with Obama that this is the correct thing to do. . . keep it open until we find appropriate places for the terrorists. . . hope that someone takes them.

Same old, same old but now we can all hope.

What a bunch of bull.
It is NOT the same position as Bush.
Bush said he wanted to close Gitmo but did NOTHING to make it happen.
Obama is going to issue the order to MAKE IT HAPPEN.
If it takes time, it takes time - but UNTIL the President orders it to happen NOTHING will happen.

Bush had no intention of making it happen - and was just paying lip service.
Obama will make it happen.

That's pretty darned different.

Yes, and Bush was paying lip service AFTER Obama made his statements that it should be closed. He was just trying to get on the positive side of things when he saw how Obama's statements were perceived.
