Obama presents plan to close Guantanamo, move detainees to US

President Obama on Tuesday presented the four-point plan that he has given Congress to close the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, that includes releasing more detainees and transferring the most dangerous of them to U.S. soil

The president presented the plan in his last months of office, in perhaps a final effort to fulfill his 2008 campaign promise.   

The plan for the 91 remaining detainees includes:

-- The “careful” transfer of 35 detainees to overseas countries

-- Accelerating the review process for the roughly 56 remaining detainees to see whether they’re eligible for transfer
