Obama supports Guantanamo Bay detention

“Obama famously promised to close the Guantanamo detention facility within a year of becoming president of the United States. But as he acknowledges, it’s still open with “approximately 166 detainees” nearly four full years after Obama was first sworn in as president.”

Update: Obama appointed Daniel Fried as “Special Envoy” in charge of an office that Obama created ostensibly for the purpose of closing the Guantanamo detention facility.  But now, that office has been closed (while the Guantanamo detention facility remains open)– Daniel Fried has been “reassigned” and “will not be replaced.”
