John McCain stöder Obamas beslut, men anser likväl att det var något förhastat eftersom det finns många frågor som inte är lösta. CNN skriver:
"I think that it's a wise move," McCain said about closing Guantanamo Bay. "But I also think that we should have addressed this whole issue completely, because it did not address the issue of those who we have in custody and can't -- and no country will take them back. We should have addressed the issue of those who we know would pose a threat to the United States, but we don't have sufficient evidence to move forward."
