ON-Lion Letter
In January 2009, newly inaugurated President Barack Obama issued an executive order calling for the Guantanamo Bay detention facility to be closed within one year.  The President explained that closing Guantanamo would return America to the "moral high ground" and restore our "core constitutional values."

In his explosive new Encounter Broadside, What President Obama Doesn't Know About GuantanamoThomas Joscelyn explains why Obama's executive order was pure folly.  The President made his decision to shutter Guantanamo before he or his advisors knew the first thing about the detainees, how to handle their complex cases, or the valuable intelligence gained from Gitmo.

Joscelyn is a senior fellow of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies in Washington, D.C., and executive director of its Center for Law & Counterterrorism, which is supported by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee.

Encounter Books is an activity of Encounter for Culture and Education, a nonprofit group that is also supported by Bradley.
