Now, as the Pentagon moves to improve prisoner conditions, officials have allowed several 'high-value' inmates to make Skype-like video calls and speak with their families for the first time since they were brought to Guantanamo Bay from secret CIA prisons overseas.

    Saturday Jan 24 | Los Angeles Times

    President Obama has recharged his campaign for closing the Guantanamo Bay detention center with a strategy legal experts say holds out new hope of achieving that signature objective of his presidency.
