The now closed Camp X-Ray was used as the first detention facility for al Qaeda and Taliban militants who were captured after the Sept. 11 attacks at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. President Obama signed an executive order in his first days in office setting a deadline to close the prison within a year. Next month he will be five years delinquent, facing the prospect of finishing his term in 2017 without having met his goal. (Associated Press)
