Military officials are poised to submit to Congress a much-anticipated report on how to close the US detention center at Guantanamo Bay, a spokesman said Monday. Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said the military would meet a Tuesday deadline to release the plan on how to shutter the controversial facility. The detention center at Guantanamo Bay was opened by then president George W. Bush in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks and the US-led invasion of Afghanistan.
