FILE - In this Nov. 21, 2013, file photo reviewed by the U.S. military, dawn arrives at the now closed Camp X-Ray, which was used as the first detention facility for al-Qaida and Taliban militants who were captured after the Sept. 11 attacks at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, Cuba. U.S. officials say the Pentagon’s long-awaited plan to shut down the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and transfer the remaining detainees to a facility in the U.S. calls for up to $475 million in construction costs, but would save as much as $180 million per year in operating costs.

FILE - In this Nov. 19, 2013 file photo reviewed by the U.S. military, a U.S. flag flies above buildings used for military tribunals for suspected terrorist prisoners at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, Cuba. A military judge is trying to decide whether the attempt to prosecute five prisoners at the U.S. Navy base in Guantanamo Bay for the Sept. 11 attacks can resume after stalling for nearly a year because of the revelation of an apparent FBI investigation into members of one of the defense teams. The five defendants are expected back in court Monday, Feb. 9, 2015, for a hearing focused on whether more time is required to explore any potential conflict of interest arising from the questioning by FBI agents of defense team support staff.
