Eric Holder, earlier today at a House hearing, expressed skepticism on whether Gitmo would be closed before the president finished his first term in office:

"I don't know," Holder said. "We will do all that we can. We have to obviously work with Congress. Congress has put barriers in place to what I think is what we should be doing, and so we'll have to try to work through those restrictions and work with our allies to try to come up with a way in which we can do that."
