Gitmo to Close Within a Year: Obama to Sign Order Tomorrow The Obamanites are fools to do this! It is a shameful act not to continue holding these prisoners indefinitely and to proceed with prosecuting them by military tribunal as the unlawful enemy combatants they are. It is a slap in the face to those who've suffered at the hands of these terrorists and to those that have been fighting against them. It reflects Obama's level of inexperience and poor judgment. It confirms within days just what kind of ridiculous "changes" we're going to see in the coming years.
