Obama says he should have closed Guantanamo on his first day

CLEVELAND –

President Barack Obama says if he could start his presidency over, he would have closed the Guantanamo Bay prison his first day.

He said Wednesday that “the path of least resistance was just to leave it open.” He’s been able to cut the population down to 122 detainees, but Congress has blocked closure.
