President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address was an advertisement for his ideological fixity, and so he reiterated his unbending determination to close down the prison facility at Guantanamo Bay.
Gitmo is to him what Carthage was to Cato the Elder. It is an obsession, and it must not stand.
One of his first acts as president was to sign an executive order to close it down (having no idea what that would entail), and if he has to, he will send Marine One to evacuate the last of the detainees as he leaves office in January 2017.
