Guantanamo was 'misguided experiment'


President Obama has made his case to Congress and the American public on why they should back his anti-terror strategy.

He said the US had lost its way on national security and the fight against terror under the Bush administration.

Mr Obama set out why it would be best to close down the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, but there is widespread concern this would leave terror suspects at large or see them transferred to US soil.

Adam Brookes looks at the President's speech and its implications.
