Earlier this morning, President Obama conducted a news conference.  The questions touched on, among other things, the closure of the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, and the detainees' ongoing hunger strike there.

The President strongly reiterated his desire to shutter the prison---and, most notably, said he would "go back at this," and re-engage with Congress on the issue.

The GTMO-related Q&A begins at 25:28.
