Obama Promised (Again) That He’d Close Gitmo. So Can He? | Mother Jones

Seriously, how can America afford to give up such a great recruiting tool as Gitmo (for recruiting terrorist–that is).

Robert Chesney, a law professor at the University of Texas-Austin who served on an Obama administration task force charged with evaluating detention policy, says that Obama’s intentions are genuine, but the GOP-controlled House and Democrat-led Senate pose too great an obstacle.

“I certainly don’t think it’s going to happen, because Congress is cabining him in,” he says. “This isn’t the policy he wants, but it’s the policy he’s stuck with.”
