Is this the "Hope and Change" you expected? From the New York Times today:
"Rebuffed this month by skeptical lawmakers when it sought finances to buy a prison in rural Illinois, the Obama administration is struggling to come up with the money to replace the Guantánamo Bay prison.
As a result, officials now believe that they are unlikely to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and transfer its population of terrorism suspects until 2011 at the earliest — a far slower timeline for achieving one of President Obama’s signature national security policies than they had previously hinted."
I guess Obama didn't work long enough in the private sector to know that you are supposed to under promise and over deliver - not the other way around!
UPDATE: Obama never intended to close Gitmo?
