President Obama's Biggest Regret May Surprise You

If Americans were to answer a question regarding Obama's worst mistakes while in the White House, they might point to the botched roll-out of Obamacare, the unprecedented IRS scandal, the blaming of a video and deaths that took place in the tragic Benghazi event, the Fast and Furious scandal where the Department of Justice sent guns illegally across the Mexican border or the President's border policies.

Yet, when a seven-year-old asked Obama this very question, Obama answered, "I would've closed Guantanamo on the first day." Obama went on to say, “I thought we had enough consensus where we could do it in a more deliberate fashion. But the politics of it got tough, and people got scared by the rhetoric around it. Once that set in, then the path of least resistance was just to leave it open, even though it’s not who we are as a country and it’s used by terrorists around the world to help recruit jihadists. We’ve had to just chip away at it, year after year, but I think in those first couple weeks we could've done it quicker."
