Another Slide On Gitmo

Things like this are why Obama's taking some serious heat from his own Left flank:

The New York Times reports:

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.

I consider this to be a very good thing, of course.  Keep it up!

There's my two cents.
