Protesters in orange jumpsuits, hoods demand Obama close Guantanamo

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Scores of demonstrators gathered at the White House on Friday (January 11) to protest the 11th anniversary of the first prisoners arriving at the detention facility in Guantanamo Bay. The protesters, some wearing orange jumpsuits and hoods, called on President Barack Obama to honor his promise and close the facility. The group also urged Obama to either release the men still detained in Guantanamo or charge them and give them fair trial. Only seven cases have been completed in the Guantanamo court and four of them involved only charges of conspiracy and material support. Similar protests were held in Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami and London.
