10:29 am
10:30 am
>> announcer: this is an nbc news special report. here is willie geist. >> good morning. in just a moment president obama will make a statement from the roosevelt room at the white house. we expect him to put forth a plan for closing the prison at guantanamo bay, cuba. this is something the president has vowed to do since he first ran for the job as a united states senator. we have already heard clear opposition from senate majority leader mitch mcconnell and it will stir up debate on the campaign trail. let's bring in jim mik la she have skier in there were as many as 1,800 detainees at guantanamo bay. that number down to 91.
10:31 am
as many as 35 could be released to other country and it could cost the u.s. $460 million to build detention facilities for 30 to 60 of those detainees who would be brought to the u.s. and inncarcerated many most likely for life. we have republican majorities in both chambers of congress. let's go to the president right now. good morning, everybody. in our fight against terrorists like al qaeda and isil we are using every element of our national power. our military, intelligence, diplomacy, homeland security, law enforcement, federal state and local, as well as the example of our ideals as a country that's committed to universal values. including rule of law and human rights. in this fight we learn and we
10:32 am
when we find something that works, we keep on doing it. when it becomes clear that something is not working as intended, when it does not advance our security, we have to change course. for many years it's been clear that the detention facility at guantanamo bay does not advance our national security. it undermines it. this is not just my opinion. this is the opinion of experts, this is the opinion of many in our military. it's counter productive to our fight against terrorists because they use it as propaganda in their efforts to recruit. it drains military resources. with nearly $450 million spent last year alone to keep it running. more than $200 million in additional costs needed to keep
10:33 am
than 100 detainees. guantanamo harms our partnerships with allies and other countries whose cooperation we need against terrorism. when i talk to other world leaders they bring up the fact that guantanamo is not resolved. moreover, keeping this facility open is contrary to our values. it undermines our standing in the world. it is viewed as a stain on our broader record of upholding the highest standards of rule of law. as americans we pride ourselves on being a beacon to other nations, a model of the rule of law. but 15 years after 9/11, 15 years after the worst terrorist attack in american history, we're still having to defend the existence of a facility and a process where not a single
10:34 am
those attacks. not a single one. when i first ran for president it was widely recognized that this facility needed to close. this was not just my opinion. this was not some radical far left view. there was a bipartisan support to close it. my predecessor, president bush, to his credit said he wanted to close it. it was one of the few things that i and my republican opponent, senator john mccain, agreed on. and so in one of my first acts as president i took action to begin closing it. and because we had bipartisan support, i wanted to make sure that we did it right. i indicated that we would need
10:35 am
systematic way and that we had examined all the options. unfortunately during that period where we were putting the pieces in place to close it what had previously been bipartisan support suddenly became a partisan issue. suddenly many who previously had said it should be closed backed off because they were worried about the politics. the public was scared into thinking that, well, if we close it somehow we will be less safe. and since that time congress has repeatedly imposed restrictions aimed at preventing us from closing this facility. now, despite the politics we have made progress. of the nearly 800 detainees once held at guantanamo more than 85% have already been transferred to other countries. more than 500 of these
10:36 am
under president bush. since i took office we have so far transferred 147 more. each under new significant restrictions to keep them from returning to the battlefield. and as a result of these actions today just 91 detainees remain. less than 100. today the defense department, thanks to very hard work by secretary of defense ash carter as well as his team working in concert with the office of management budget, today the department is submitting to congress our plan for finally closing the facility at guantanamo once and for all. it's a plan that reflects the hard work of my entire national security team. so i especially want to thank
10:37 am
this plan has my full support. it reflects our best thinking on how to best go after terrorists and deal with those who we may capture and it is a strategy with four main elements. first, we will continue to securely and responsibly transfer to other countries the 35 detainees out of the 91 that have already been approved for transfer. keep in mind that process involves extentsive and careful coordination across our federal government to ensure that our national security interests are met when an individual is transferred to another country. so, for example, we insist that foreign countries constitute strong security measures. and as we move forward that means that we will have around 60 and potentially even fewer detainees remaining.
10:38 am
periodic reviews of remaining detainees to determine whether their continued detention is necessary. a review board, which includes representatives from across government, will continue to look at all relevant information including current intelligence and if certain detainees no longer pose a continuing significant threat, they may be eligible for transfer to another country as well. number three, we will continue to use all legal tools to deal with the remaining detainees still held under law for detention. currently ten detainees are in some stage of the military commission's process, a process that we worked hard to reform in my first year in office with bipartisan support from congress. but i have to say with respect to these commissions they are very costly.
10:39 am
litigation without a resolution. we are, therefore, outlining additional changes to improve these commissions which would require congressional action and we will be consulting with them in the near future on that issue. i also want to point out that in contrast to the commission process our article 3 federal courts have proven to have an outstanding record of convicting some of the most hardened terrorists. these prosecutions allow for the gathering of intelligence against terrorist groups. it proves that we can both prosecute terrorists and protect the american people. so think about it. terrorists like richard reed, the shoe bomber, of abdul mute la who tried to blow up a plane over detroit, the man who tried
10:40 am
they were all convicted in our article 3 courts and are now behind bars here in the united states. so we can capture terrorists, protect the american people and when done right we can try them and put them in our maximum security prisons and it works just fine. in this sense the plan we're putting forward today isn't just about closing the facility at guantanamo, it's not just about dealing with the current group of detainees which is a complex piece of business because of the manner in which they were originally apprehended and what happened. this is about closing a chapter in our history. it reflects the lessons we have learned since 9/11.
10:41 am
nation going forward. so even as we use military commissions to close out the cases of some current detainees, which given the unique circumstances of their cases make it difficult for them to be tried in article iii courts, this type of use of military commission should not set a precedent for the future. as they have been in past wars, military commissions will continue to be an option when individuals are detained during battle, but our preferred option, the most effective option for dealing with individuals detained outside military theaters, must be our strong proven federal courts. fourth, and finally, we're going to work with congress to find a secure location in the united states to hold remaining
10:42 am
these are detainees who are subject to military commissions, but it also includes those who cannot yet be transferred to other countries or who we have determined must continue to be detained because they pose a continuing significant threat to the united states. we are not identifying a specific facility today in this plan. we are outlining what options look like. as congress has imposed restrictions that currently prevent the transfer of detainees to the united states, we recognize that this is going to be a challenge and we are going to keep making the case to congress that we can do this in a responsible and secure way, taking into account the lessons and great record of our maximum security prisons. and let me point out the plan we are submitting today is not only the right thing to do for our security, it will also save money.
10:43 am
that this plan compared to keeping guantanamo open would lower costs by up to $85 million a year. over ten years it would generate savings of more than $300 million. over 20 years the savings would be up to $1.7 billion. in other words, we can ensure our security, uphold our highest values around the world and save american taxpayers a lot of money in the process. in closing i want to say i am very clear eyed about the hurdles to finally closing guantanamo. the politics of this are tough. i think a lot of the american public are worried about terrorism and in their mind the
10:44 am
in the united states rather than in some distant place can be scary scary. but part of my message to the american people here is we're already holding a bunch of really dangerous terrorists here in the united states because we threw the book at them and there have been no incidents. we've managed it just fine. and in congress i recognize in part because of some of the fears of public that have been fanned oftentimes by misinformation there continues to be a fair amount of opposition to closing guantanamo. if it were easy it would have happened years ago, as i wanted, as i have been working to try to get done. but there remains bipartisan support for closing it. and given the stakes involved
10:45 am
deserves a fair hearing. even in an election year. we should be able to have an open, honest, good faith dialogue about how to best ensure our national security. and the fact that i'm no longer running, joe is no longer running, we're not on the ballot, it gives us the capacity to not have to worry about the politics. let us do what is right for america. let us go ahead and close this chapter. and do it right and do it carefully and do it in a way that makes sure we're safe, but -- but gives the next president and more importantly future generations the ability to apply the lessons we've learned in the fight against terrorism and doing it in a way that doesn't raise some of the problems that guantanamo has raised. i really think there is an
10:46 am
i believe we've got an obligation to try. president bush said he wanted to close guantanamo despite everything that he had invested in it. i give him credit for that. there was an honest assessment on his part about what needed to happen. but he didn't get it done and it was passed to me. i've been working for seven years now to get this thing closed. as president i have spent countless hours dealing with this. i do not exaggerate about that. our closest allies raise it with me continually. they often raise specific cases of detainees repeatedly. i don't want to pass this problem on to the next president, whoever it is. and if as a nation we don't deal with this now when will we deal with it? are we going to let this linger on for another 15 years, another
10:47 am
if we don't do what's required now i think future generations are going to look back and ask why we failed to act when the right course, the right side of history and of justice and our best american traditions was clear. so, again, i want to thank secretary carter, you and your team did an outstanding job and you have shown great leadership on this issue. with this plan we have the opportunity finally to eliminate a terrorist propaganda tool, strengthen relationships with allies and partners, enhance our national security and most importantly uphold the values that define as americans. i'm absolutely committed to closing the detention facility at guantanamo. i'm going to continue to make the case for doing so as long as i hold this office, but this is a good moment for everybody to step back, take a look at the
10:48 am
of those who have been most committed to fighting terrorism and understand this stuff. our operatives, our intelligence officials, our military, let's go ahead and get this thing done. thanks very much, everybody. >> president obama addressing the country from the videos velt room at the white house laying out his plan once again for closing the detention facility at guantanamo bay, cuba. let's bring in chuck todd nbc's police cal director moderator of "meet the press." the president twice invoking president george w. bush as someone who once shared his view that guantanamo needs to be closed. >> you know, on his first full day of his presidency i remember sitting there watching him sign an executive order that said he was closing down guantanamo bay. that prison within one year. here we are nearly eight years later and it's still not closed. the point is this, willie. he had -- he had more bipartisan support for shutting down gitmo eight years ago than he does today. he had john mccain ready to work
10:49 am
to work with him. they don't do it. already before the president spoke this morning, willie, a major democratic senator from colorado, a state that houses one of these big prisons that these guys might go to said they are not coming to colorado. this is a plan that the president wanted to get out but it has very little support in congress on a bipartisan basis. >> that's a democrat and majority leader mitch mcconnell calling this an ill considered crew side by a president. much more right now on and msnbc.o say. >> and she brings (man) this is where it all started. i received a call from our dispatch center. smoke was coming from a manhole, and that's not good. we entered the manhole.

10:51 am
10:52 am
(phone ringing) you can't deal with something, by ignoring it. but that's how some presidential candidates seem to be dealing with social security. americans work hard, and pay into it. so our next president needs a real plan to keep it strong. (elephant noise) (donkey noise)
