President-elect Barack “Obama repeated Sunday [January 11, 2009] that he intends to close the Guantanamo center but acknowledged the challenges involved. ‘It is more difficult than I think a lot of people realize,’ Obama said on ABC’s ‘This Week,’ ‘and we are going to get it done, but part of the challenge that you have is that you have a bunch of folks that have been detained, many of whom may be very dangerous, who have not been put on trial or have not gone through some adjudication. And some of the evidence against them may be tainted, even though it’s true.’ “
