Law School Professor Dampens Guantanamo Party

Written by

President Obama signed an executive order closing overseas CIA prisons and Guantanamo today, promising that the prison will be out of operation within a year. Matthew Waxman, Columbia law professor and former detainee affairs official for the Bush administration, had a few pointers.

Waxman has been calling for the end of Guantanamo for a while, but, though that objective has now been achieved, he has not donned a party hat and thrown confetti. In a new Foriegn Policy article, Waxman emphasizied the difficult road ahead, writing, “any closure plan will entail risks and difficult trade-offs.” So much for fun and easy closings of torture centers.

There is no word yet on the executive order to close McBain.
