It was obvious to most American's that Guantanamo Bay was not going to close in January. The remaining terrorists at Gitmo are very dangerous. No other country wants them and Americans won't tolerate terrorists moved into their neighborhoods.
From the Wall Street Journal:
WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration's counterterrorism chief appeared to provide the first indication the administration may not make its January deadline for closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay in remarks Thursday that aimed to outline a new path for combating terrorism.
Answering questions after his speech at the Washington think tank, Mr. Brennan said, "I don't have a crystal ball that I can say with certainty" that the prison at Guantanamo Bay will be closed on time.
