New delay in moving Gitmo detainees

Man, those unequivocal Obama campaign promises are really going nowhere.

Plan to Move Guantánamo Detainees Faces a New Delay


WASHINGTON - Rebuffed this month by skeptical lawmakers when it sought finances to buy a prison in rural Illinois, the Obama administration is struggling to come up with the money to replace the Guantánamo Bay prison.
As a result, officials now believe that they are unlikely to close the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and transfer its population of terrorism suspects until 2011 at the earliest - a far slower timeline for achieving one of President Obama's signature national security policies than they had previously hinted.

Funny - when reality and childish fantasies of unlimited power collide, reality wins.
