‘Closing Gitmo prison can be done by January’
Washington: The White House national security adviser says he`s confident the administration will meet President Barack Obama`s deadline for closing the Guantanamo Bay detention facility by January.
National security adviser Jim Jones says officials are working every day to find the right solution for dealing with suspected terrorists being held at the US naval base in Cuba.
But the Senate`s leading Republican, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, predicts that the effort to close the prison will meet with strong bipartisan opposition in Congress.
McConnell argues there is no reason to close Guantanamo`s prison, saying it`s not broken and doesn`t need fixing.
Jones and McConnell appeared on "Fox News Sunday."
