Attorney General vows to close Guantanamo
PARIS (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday the United States would close the Guantanamo Bay facility holding terrorism suspects in Cuba, despite missing a previous deadline to do so.
On an official visit to Paris, Holder stressed what he called unprecedented intelligence-sharing ties between France and the United States against a united enemy, al Qaeda, that he said still held the two countries and its allies in its sights.
The recent killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was unlikely to affect the timing of the closure of the Guantanamo facility, Holder said.
"Although we have not closed Guantanamo within the time period that we initially indicated ... it is still the intention of the president, and it is still my intention, to close the facility that exists in Guantanamo," Holder told a joint news briefing with French Interior Minister Claude Gueant.
"We think that by closing that facility the national security of the United States will be enhanced," he added.

The security of the United States would be enhanced by the placement of Eric Holder at Guantanamo on a permanent basis.
Holder and Obama never gave up on closing Gitmo. Obama was hoping for a giant show trial of KSM and OBL in NYC.
You 'think' wrong ..............
What an idiot.
I hope we can hold out until we get a POTUS and Administration that isn’t committed to destroying America!
A good (R) candidate wouldn’t hurt.
So he can tax it?
Hearing now that O won’t get amnesty before the election.
BEWARE the lie. When they say they are not going to do something you can count on that being untrue.
I hope Gunrunner is the end of this incompetent feminine hygene product.
How about we put Eric Holder IN Guantanamo?
Many in the Obama administration are so full of S, that it’s surprising they can open their yaps without some spilling out.
We used GitMo information, to get Osama Ben Laden. No wonder they want to close it. Just damn...
Can’t wait to get the D-team out of there.
Why is this pathetic wretch in Paris? Is he there at taxpayer expense?
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
republicans need to campaign on getting rid of O just to get rid of these other aholes,also
Eric WE plan to close you down next year. So, get your little getto bag packed and ready.
Exactly. Well said
I’ve got a fresh, clean, crisp $20 bill for any reporter who walks up to Holder and puts a microphone by Holder’s behind. When Holder asks him what he’s doing, the reporter would say, “You’re always talking out your ass. I’m just trying to get a scoop”.
Waterboard the clown...for that matter, do it to all of Zero’s clowns including Zero himself.
Detainee ops at GTMO will close when the last Detainee dies in place.
No matter WHAT Holder wishes.
