Obama's Security Speech Gets Mixed Reviews

Ad Feedback

President Obama's speech on national security was met with mixed reaction Friday. Mr. Obama took the opportunity to make a new push to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba, a move many republicans disagree with.

Senator Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., argued, "I have been one to advocate maintaining Guantanamo Bay and my reason is pretty simple, If we were to capture some of the Benghazi terrorists who we know today are running free, what are we going to do with them?"

During Thursday's speech the president also defended his controversial drone strikes program, but announced more restrictive rules for future attacks.

It's an announcement that is said to be well received by Pakistan and Yemen, the two countries that see most of the strikes.

However, the president gave few details as much of the policy has to be classified.
