Obama Promises to Close Gitmo at SOTU – Top Generals Do Not Applaud (Video)
Tuesday during his State of the Union Address Barack Obama promised to close Guantanamo Bay.
As Americans, we have a profound commitment to justice — so it makes no sense to spend three million dollars per prisoner to keep open a prison that the world condemns and terrorists use to recruit. Since I’ve been President, we’ve worked responsibly to cut the population of GTMO in half. Now it’s time to finish the job. And I will not relent in my determination to shut it down. It’s not who we are.
The top generals in the audience did not applaud.
