Summary

On January 22, 2009, President Obama issued an executive order calling for the Guantanamo Bay detention facility to be closed within one year. It was one of the new president's first acts in office. The President explained that closing Guantanamo would return America to the "moral high ground" and restore "the core constitutional values that have made this country great even in the midst of war." In this explosive new Broadside, Thomas Joscelyn explains why President Obama's executive order was pure folly. He reveals that the President made his decision to shutter Guantanamo before he or his advisers knew the first thing about the detainees, how to handle their complex cases, or about the valuable intelligence America gained from the men detained at Gitmo--intelligence that saved lives.
