February 23, 2016 - President Barack Obama's long-awaited plan to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility was delivered to Congress Tuesday morning, seven years after Obama made an Oval Office vow to permanently shutter the prison for enemy combatants.
The plan, which officials said Tuesday morning would identify 13 potential sites inside the United States to which detainees could be transferred, isn't expected to gain any traction among Republican lawmakers, who control both chambers of Congress.
