Forty-one detainees remain at Guantanamo Bay. Their futures, as well as the future of the controversial detention center for terrorism suspects, is still uncertain. President Trump says he intends to keep it open, though he has yet to send the prison any new detainees.

NPR correspondent David Welna (@NPRwelna) joins Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss his reporting on the latest meeting of a war tribunal that could bring to trial five men who stand accused of planning the 9/11 attacks.

This segment aired on December 27, 2017.
