The Obama Administration Really Intends That It Means It This Time......

Reuters: Attorney General vows to close Guantanamo

Although we have not closed Guantanamo within the time period that we initially indicated ... it is still the intention of the president, and it is still my intention, to close the facility that exists in Guantanamo," Holder told a joint news briefing with French Interior Minister Claude Gueant.
Well, at least Holder and Obama still intend to do it, so perhaps the headline that Holder is vowing to close it is a bit of an overstatement. Good and noble intentions, after all, are all that matter when every promise comes with an expiry date.

When pressed for an exact date of closure, Holder allegedly replied "ad kalendas graecas".
