President Obama detailed Tuesday a four-point plan he’ll submit to Congress to eventually close the detention facility at Guantanamo, Cuba — a plan that includes releasing more of the remaining 91 detainees, while transferring others to an as-yet determined facility on U.S. soil.
Much of the president’s plan, which represents a final effort to fulfill his 2008 campaign pledge to close the detention center, still must be approved by Congress, and includes:
— The “careful” transfer of 35 detainees to overseas countries;
— Accelerating the review process for the roughly 56 remaining detainees to see whether they’re eligible for transfer;
— Using “all of the legal tools” available to resolve the cases of detainees in the commission process; and,
— Work with Congress to select a secure transfer location on U.S. soil.
