Obama has promised to close Gitmo, the abbreviation for the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base.
With most of the prisoners, hunger strike, he told reporters at a White House press conference the detention center isn’t good for America’s image abroad, says the Washington Post, going on to quote him as stating
“I’m going to go back at this.
“I’m going to reengage with Congress to try to make the case that this is not something that’s in the best interests of the American people.”
Obama’s appearance before the media highlighted “how much his second and final term remains consumed by the unfinished business of his first”, the story adds.
