President Obama has less than a year to meet one of his campaign promises and close Guantánamo Bay prison.
And he's picking up the pace.
Now there are 91 detainees left in the prison. If the Pentagon could keep up this 2016 pace, the prison would be empty in six months. But of those 91, only 34 are cleared for transfer. For the ones who aren't recommended for transfer, if Obama wants the prison closed, they may have to come to the U.S.
But Congress prohibited Obama from transferring Guantánamo detainees to U.S. soil.
So those last 57 detainees are Obama's challenge.
