I am surprised that this writer appears to be so shocked at this development.

After all, President Obama is the President who has decided that he can extrajudicially indefinitely detain any American he believes he wants detained, according to the language of the NDAA, and can extrajudicially assassinate any American at any place, and any time, he feels like it.

President Obama has institutionalized indefinite detention and extrajudicial assassination in American law, and that is what will define his "presidential legacy".

IF you ask me, that is a pretty darned lousy legacy to leave this country. - Mike of WRH

Obama administration abandons closing Gitmo?. VIDEO)

A little over four years ago, President Obama announced that he would close Guantanamo Bay, but since his presidency moves have been taken to prove otherwise.

Recently, the State Department closed the office responsible for shutting down the jail and the man leading the operation, Daniel Fried has been resigned.

So will President Obama keep his promise to close Gitmo? White House Reporter for Politico, Josh Gerstein, gives us his take on the recent events.
