(Reuters) - President Barack Obama wants to roll back some of the most controversial aspects of the U.S. "war on terror," but efforts to alter the global fight against Islamist militants will face the usual hurdle at home: staunch opposition from Republicans in Congress.
In a major policy speech on Thursday, Obama narrowed the scope of the targeted-killing drone campaign against al Qaeda and its allies and announced steps toward closing the Guantanamo Bay military prison in Cuba.
Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss said in an address to constituents on Friday.
Obama called for an end to a "boundless global war on terror" but Republicans warned against being too quick to declare al Qaeda a spent force. LINK
