Closing Guantanamo - within the first Four Years

I wonder how Europeans will interpret this:
In a wide-ranging 70-minute interview with Washington Post reporters and editors, the president-elect pledged quick action on the Middle East once he takes office, promised to support voting rights for D.C. residents, and said he will consider it a failure if he has not closed the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, by the end of his first term in office.
There are people around these parts who are expecting Guantanamo will be closed by Tuesday evening.
