Remember when a newly inaugurated President Barack Obama signed an executive order on Jan. 22, 2009 requiring that the Guantanamo Bay detention facility be closed within a year? Or when the president used his State of the Union address in January 2015 to renew his pledge to close Gitmo, saying that he would not relent in his determination to shut it down? Or when he announced this summer that the White House was in the “final stages” of drafting a plan to close the terrorist detention center in Cuba?

The clock is ticking on Obama’s presidency, and in the administration’s rush to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba, President Raul Castro has said the U.S. should return the Guantanamo Bay military base to Cuban sovereignty, resulting in a so-far fruitless search for an American site to welcome the terrorists.

The president at a fundraiser this week noted that it was the seventh anniversary of his election, and today he said that he’ll announce his plan to close Gitmo “soon.”

While America waits patiently for the president’s plan to close Guantanamo Bay, rest assured that he’s not letting other important business slide. Seven post offices now have names thanks to his mighty pen.
