McCaskill: Obama Underestimated GITMO Challenge

Sen. Claire McCaskill says it's better to be right than quick in dealing with the detainees housed at GITMO.
In an interview, McCaskill wouldn't second-guess the President's decision to announce the closing of GITMO in January without an accompanying plan. But she did add: "He probably underestimated how difficult it was going to be."
"This isn't a President that's afraid to say, I need to back up and take another look. There's no shame in that . . . I think it's fine that we're going to wait another few months," McCaskill said.
Get Sen. Bond's quite different take on it all HERE.
