What’s Next?

It’s still unclear what will happen next. According to reports, National Security staff has been considering options for changing the legal status of Guantánamo.

Republican lawmakers have accused Obama of failing to develop a comprehensive detainee policy that could be relied upon in the event of the facility’s closure, but a 2009 plan proffered by the president was rejected by the Senate. The plan called for $80 million to transfer the detainees to U.S. prisons.
