Obama Considering Closing Gitmo With Executive Order

Last night, Gwyneth Paltrow wished up on a falling star, if she believes in such a thing, that Barack Obama would have greater opportunity to enact his legislative agenda without having to rely on the pesky details associated with a representative democracy. This morning, the Hill announced that Barack Obama is considering using executive action to close Guantanamo Bay's terrorist detention facility and by pass legislation designed to keep Gitmo detainees out of the American prison population.

Coincidence? I think not. Also a conicidence? I fully support this idea if the terrorists can be relocated to Gwyneth Paltrow's Brentwood mansion. She already has the 9-foot steel gates. 

President Obama is considering executive action to close the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, despite congressional legislation that bans the transfer of detainees there to prisons in the U.S., according to a Thursday report.
