Remember when President Bush said he wanted to close Gitmo? That was back in 2006 and he still hasn't done it. He and his advisers were so ideologically hidebound that they decided to pass the mess on to the incoming President. Although he won't be President for another week, Barrack Obama is already moving to close the detention facility:
Obama preparing order to close Gitmo
President-elect Barack Obama is preparing to issue an executive order his first week in office -- and perhaps his first day -- to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, according to two presidential transition team advisers.

'Change' means moving past these Bush-Cheney tautologies and getting the job done. Perhaps we'll even see some headway on curing our addiction to foreign oil.
