The Office to Close Guantánamo is Now Closed But the Prison is Still Open

So, it looks like Obama isn’t going to close the Guantánamo detention facility after all:

The State Department on Monday reassigned Daniel Fried, the special envoy for closing the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and will not replace him, according to an internal personnel announcement. Mr. Fried’s office is being closed, and his former responsibilities will be “assumed” by the office of the department’s legal adviser, the notice said.
