What was that Obama said about closing down Gitmo?? Swooners any comments about your grand liar in chief?

WASHINGTON — Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is weighing a proposal to build a new $49 million prison for special detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba — another sign that the base President Barack Obama promised to shut down will remain open indefinitely.
The new prison proposal is in an early stage, unlike proposed upgrades that include a new dining hall, hospital and barracks for prison guards, which are more advanced. A spokesman said all of the facilities proposed for replacement are deteriorating because they were never intended to be permanent.
“Most of the buildings and infrastructure were built for a short-term mission,” said Lt. Cmdr. Ron Flanders, a spokesman for the U.S. Southern Command. “We got down there in 2002, but never in a million years we would still have this in 2013 with no end in sight.”

In order to effect the appropriate disposition of individuals currently detained by the Department of Defense at Guantánamo and promptly to close the detention facility at Guantánamo consistent with the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States and the interest of justice, I hereby order. And we then provide the process whereby Guantánamo will be closed no later than one year from now.

Signed,
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA - 2009

They need to have trials for these people and either bring them here to serve their time or release them to their country of citizenship.

Under Obama's NDAA, the government needs a place to put all those suspected terrorist US citizens that will be detained indefinitely, along with all the international suspected terrorists that the US rounds up and brings back to the US. Welcome to Hotel Gitmo.
