Obama had a plan to close the military prison in Guantanamo Bay announced on the first day of his Presidency in January 20, 2009. All he got was the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

Meanwhile, the stain of Guantanamo Bay remains as an obnoxious breech of civil liberties and an insult to the principle of "due process" in domestic and international law, even today in October of 2016.
Obama has done nothing in 7 years but now he has a "new plan". Surely if you are the most powerful man in the world you just have to say " Close Guantanamo Bay now."
