Guantanamo prisoners face uncertain future


Guantanamo prisoners face uncertain futureMIAM -- The looming presidency of Donald Trump has created a deep sense of uncertainty for inmates at Guantanamo on the 15th anniversary of the arrival of the first prisoners at the U.S. base in Cuba. But those left behind will face the future under Trump, who has said he wants to keep Guantanamo open and recently called on Obama to halt releases. 'Load it up with some bad dudes'Obama was unable to close Guantanamo because of American opposition to holding any of the men in the United States. That ultimately became a ban on transferring them to U.S. soil for any reason, including trial, making the failure to close the detention center part of his legacy. Trump said during the campaign that he not only wants to keep Guantanamo open but "load it up with some bad dudes."
