Obama 'will close Guantanamo Bay before he leaves office,' with or without Congress
The clock is ticking for President Barack Obama to make good on one of his biggest promises — closing Guantanamo Bay. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough backed the president on Sunday in what would be an enormous moral victory for the Obama Administration. “He feels an obligation to the next president. He will fix this so that they don't have to be confronted with the same set of challenges,” Mr McDonough said on Fox News Sunday.
