    Gitmo is still open, and so is the prison there which he actually promised to close.

    At the time, everyone was scratching their heads - "Do we really want to mix these guys in with the general prison population?"

    The President appears to have selected the prison in Thomson, IL that will replace Gitmo as the holding facility, but it needed renovation before it was ready.

    How many of these MAJOR promises did he keep:

    Transparent government/Health care debate on CSPAN

    No lobbyists

    End the Patriot Act

    End warrantless wiretaps

    End wars and bring home troops

    End DADT

    Close GITMO/end indefinite detention without charges

    Oppose health insurance mandate and fine

    Allow imported prescription drugs

    Reform free trade

    Why do Obama supporters say that promising to end the war in Iraq counts as keeping his promise ot end the war in Iraq? It has not happened yet, but liberals are counting it as a "promise kept."

    Why close the area to boot. The prisoners stay in a efficient heat temperature climate, they get 3 very sturdy meals an afternoon, arranged to their religious standards. activity, video games, events, prayer rugs, far greater comforts than they ever had everywhere they have been given right here from.

    Out of all the possible things to complain about that are going on in the world, this is what you choose? Something that has no effect on you unless you hail from the middle east.
