The Obama administration is resuming military trials for terrorism suspects detained at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba — another step back from Obama’s 2008 campaign promise to close the prison.

The president also announced Monday that he was setting new review guidelines for the prisoners that he said would “broaden our ability to bring terrorists to justice, provide oversight for our actions, and ensure the humane treatment of detainees” — all signals that the White House does not foresee the facility being closed any time soon.
