What about Guantanamo?

This petition had 198 supporters

As you might have very well surmised, President Obama failed in his promise to close the Guantanamo detention facility within one year this past January.  Sadly, the prison remains open, prolonging one of the most shameful chapters of American history.  Closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay is in the national security interest of America and the troops that we put in harm's way.  As long as Guantanamo remains open and detainees are held without trial, the terror networks have an effective recruiting poster.  We must break the cycle of torture and terror by putting aside the failed policies that endanger our civil liberties and increase the risk to our national security.  The Obama administration must fulfill its pledge to uphold justice.  Close Guantanamo, when you fell you can.
