"With the death of Osama bin Laden, there is a perfect opportunity for the Obama administration to bring to an end the decade-long 'war on terror' by withdrawing from Afghanistan and closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The justification for both the invasion of Afghanistan (in October 2001) and the detention of prisoners in Guantanamo (which opened in January 2002) is the Authorization for Use of Military Force, passed by Congress on September 14, 2001, just three days after the 9/11 attacks."
