Closing Guantanamo by January, 2010?

"A total of 13 detainees have left Guantánamo since Obama took office. Six were resettled in Bermuda, Britain and France, not their native countries; five went to their homelands of Chad, Iraq and Saudi Arabia; and a Yemeni went home dead, an apparent suicide victim. The 13th went to New York for trial as an al Qaeda co-conspirator. About 230 remain."

That leaves Obama with 6 months in which to get rid of the other 230 Guantanamo detainees.

Will Obama do it right (and not keep to his self imposed promised deadline) or do it fast (and possibly release dangerous terrorists)?
