Obama’s Gitmo Rethink
In my New Atlanticist piece, “Obama to Close Guantánamo Prison. Eventually.” I give credit to the president-elect for carrying out his pledge to close the symbolic nightmare at Gitmo but in a manner that won’t be harmful to America’s national security.
One thing that I’ve noted many times that is being demonstrated yet again by this decision is that, after running against a caricature of the Bush foreign policy, Obama’s going to inherit the actual Bush foreign policy. Most of what he’s run pledging to do is already United States policy and has been for at least two or three years.
