Does Obama have authority to close Gitmo? (Does it matter?)

The President says he’s closing the terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The White House says some of the detainees (those deemed “the worst” terrorists of the worst who cannot be released) will be coming to the U.S. But Sen. Lindsey Graham tells Full Measure it will “never happen” and that the President is “delusional” if he thinks this is the right time to close Guantanamo. Sunday on Full Measure, we’ll explore whether the President has the authority to shut down Gitmo and bring detainees here–and whether it matters.

Getting ready for our interview about Guantanamo Bay’s detention center. Sen. Lindsey Graham R-SC

Also: A fascinating interview with the leader of “Jawbreaker”–the CIA team that captured some of Gitmo’s first terrorist inhabitants. Find out why he now says the U.S. should have shot them on the battlefield.

A maddening government waste report from Sen. John McCain finds your tax dollars funding everything from studies on drunk birds to multi-million dollar federal buildings that aren’t needed: America’s Most Wasted–Runaway Spending.

We’ll look at the broken federal Freedom of Information Act, the outrageous behavior of federal agencies to stall it, and Congressional efforts to revive it.

    Does the DC US government have the authority from the Constitution to have such a monstrosity of tyranny in the first place?

    Then, I’m going with no.
