Draft order calls for closing Guantanamo Bay
DAVID ESPO | January 21, 2009 12:18 PM EST | 


WASHINGTON The Obama administration is circulating a draft executive order that calls for closing the detention center at Guantanamo Bay within a year.

The draft order also would declare a halt to all trials currently under way at the facility, where roughly 800 detainees in the war on terror are held.

The Associated Press obtained a copy of the draft order.

It is not known when President Barack Obama intends to issue it.

The Bush administration created the detention facility after the Sept. 11 attacks.
