Defense bill keeps Guantanamo Bay open for one more year

President Obama will soon sign a law that keeps a tight rein on his ability to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, even as he’s actively looking for every possible avenue to let detainees out.

The annual defense policy bill that passed Congress last week extends a ban on transferring prisoners to the U.S. for any reason, rejecting Democrats’ efforts to allow detainees to come to the U.S. for emergency medical care. The final bill also maintains limits on the president’s ability to send the detainees to other countries.
