ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on the effort of U.S. President Barack Obama to close the Guantamo Bay detention facility in Cuba. It notes that Obama has abandoned the effort to try key terrorists in New York City and has lost the publicity battle over the cost of converting a domestic prison to house Guantanamo detainees. It mentions that the move would be fruitless and unobtainable and would increase the dangers in national security.
