 "President Trump is considering an executive order that would keep open the Guantanamo Bay prison and could lift a ban imposed by former President Obama on the CIA operating overseas clandestine prisons for terrorism suspects, according to a published report.


"A three-page draft order, titled “Detention and Interrogation of Enemy Combatants,” would reinstate other policies from the Bush administration on the treatment of terrorism detainees, according to the New York Times, which obtained a copy of the draft.
"The White House did not respond immediately to requests for comment.
"If Mr. Trump signs the order, he would also rescind Mr. Obama’s directive allowing the International Committee of the Red Cross access to all detainees being held by the U.S. abroad at “dark sites,” the paper reported.
"There are 41 detainees still at Guantanamo, despite Mr. Obama’s efforts to close the prison and transfer the suspects. Mr. Trump campaigned on a pledge to keep open the facility and send more detainees there." . . .
