?Campaign architect? Karl Rove speaks to students about Gitmo, presidential legacy

Karl Rove, one-time Deputy Chief of Staff to former President George W. Bush, spoke to a jam-packed Storer Auditorium at the University of Miami Thursday night.

After a brief opening speech, Rove transformed the event into an open forum during which audience members could ask him a question or engage him in a debate.

The “campaign architect,” as he is commonly called, built a case against President Barack Obama’s order to close Guantanamo, an overseas CIA detention center where terrorists and other “enemy combatants” are held. Obama’s order could enable terrorists to be tried in U.S. courts, to be given undeserved rights afforded American citizens and could cause damaging long-term effects, Rove said.
