Guantanamo to Stay Open Through Bush's Presidency
Friday, Tony Snow dashed any hopes that Guantanamo would be closed during Bush's presidency.
It's highly unlikely that you can dispense with all those cases between now and the end of the administration," White House spokesman Tony Snow said of about 385 prisoners currently at the Guantanamo facility. Asked directly whether the prison would close before Bush leaves office in January 2009, Snow said, "I doubt it, no."
Defense Secretary Robert Gates recently advocated the closure of Guantanamo.
