Sounded good at the time, right?

The pledge to close Gitmo was unrealistic, unnecessary and counter-productive.
The government...sees the terrorist threat every day and is under enormous pressure to keep the country safe. When one of its approaches to terrorist incapacitation becomes too costly legally or politically, it shifts to others that raise fewer legal and political problems. This doesn't increase our safety or help the terrorists. But it does make us feel better about ourselves.
