Obama’s desire to close Guantanamo Bay was something that never made even the slightest amount of sense to many (me included). Obama campaigned on closing the facility, and while he hasn’t shut it down outright, he has cleared out the prison quite a bit.

During his administration, he’s had 177 detainees transferred, repatriated, or resettled. That’s in stark contrast to the just one detainee who was transferred to the U.S. for prosecution, and four who were convicted by the GTMO military commission. We should hope most are prosecuted and imprisoned one way or the other, because an increasingly large number Obama has set free are back on the battlefield.
