Goodbye and Good Luck!

President Obama came into office convinced that the Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba where we hold jihadis captured on the battlefield was the most horrible thing in the world. He pledged to get rid of it as one of his first tasks on the job. It may be gone by the time the president is gone.


Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. said Thursday he still expects that the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, will close before the Obama administration leaves office in January.

"That is my hope and expectation," Biden said during a press conference in Sweden.

His remarks came several days after President Barack Obama’s chief spokesman revealed that the president still intends to shutter the controversial terrorist detention center before his last day in office on Jan. 20 next year.

So despite the prison being the "worst thing in the world" or something, our president decided that it was useful enough to keep going throughout his entire presidency despite the pen and phone he has freely used during his presidency.

And the next president can deal with the lack of such a facility that proved useful to him as the Long War on Islamist terrorism continues.

Thanks a bunch.
