Daily News Bin:
Obama has faced a number of hurdles when it comes to closing Guantanamo. The republican congress unilaterally banned any prisoners at the facility from being transferred to super-max prisons within the United States out of pure political spite, forcing the Obama administration to find other nations willing to house them instead. That’s resulted in a slow drip of outbound detainees over the years, with a mere hundred prisoners now remaining. More recently, the Pentagon has played the role of obstructionist, sabotaging Obama’s efforts to move the remaining detainees. But now the President is launching a definitive plan to shutter Guantanamo for good.
President Obama’s chief of staff says that the plan will soon be presented to congress for approval. When the republican-held congress predictably refuses to allow the measure to be voted on for obstructionist reasons, Obama will then move forward with executive action. So while it’ll have taken him nearly eight years it turns out the President will be able to fulfill his original campaign promise.
Like I said before "
One thing that can be said about President Obama, when he makes a promise he does everything in his power to keep it."
It is not the supposed ineffectiveness of this President that really upsets the Right Wing, it is his ability to accomplish things despite every obstacle they throw in his path.
