Pentagon to present plan to close Guantanamo Bay to Congress Tuesday

On Jan. 22, 2009, a newly inaugurated President Barack Obama signed an executive order requiring that the Guantanamo Bay detention facility be closed within a year. Obviously the president missed that goal, but last fall, at a fundraiser marking the seventh anniversary of his election, President Obama said that he’d announce his plan to close Guantanamo “soon.”

The president has made great strides in releasing inmates, with 35 of 91 remaining prisoners cleared for transfer, but tomorrow, the Pentagon is expected to present to Congress its plan to close the facility for real.

ABC News’ Luis Martinez reports that Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis on Monday declined to discuss what specific options might be included in the report to Congress. What we do know is that a Pentagon committee has been scouting out sites within the United States to house the remaining prisoners, including Fort Leavenworth in Kan., and the Centennial Correctional Facility in Canon City, Colo.

In his welcome speech to Pope Francis on his visit to Cuba last September, Raul Castro demanded that Guantanamo Bay be returned to Cuba.
