Come hell or high water, Barack Obama is dead set on closing Gitmo before he leaves office, and it doesn't matter how many of the remaining worst of the worst he releases into the world. In doing so, the President will erroneously believe he has shutdown a main recruiting tool for the terrorists. However, he would, as usual, be wrong.
When Gitmo closes, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the Taliban, and all the other terrorist groups will see this as a win for them and a defeat for the United States. They will relish that fact because they know that this "defeat" can be used as a "real" recruiting tool. Mark my words.
