Gitmo Not Likely To Close By January
The White House now says that the Guantanamo prison is unlikely to close by January as promised.
They cited legal complications for the delay, but said they were still optimistic about shutting the detention facility for terrorism suspects soon.
The announcement represents a blow to the president, who signed an executive order and set the deadline with great fanfare during his first week in office.
Republicans will likely use this as a club to beat up on the president, even though they never favored closing Gitmo in the first place.Click here for reuse options!
