Guantanamo debacle continues (with Carol Rosenberg and Jeh Johnson)

It has been just about twenty years since the opening of Guantanamo Bay and we are no closer today than we were back then to resolving what will go down in history as one of the biggest debacles in American history. After the recent news that Chief Guantánamo Prosecutor Gen. Mark Martins announced his surprise retirement, what will be the next steps in relieving the stalemate preventing things from moving forward? The families of those lost in the horrific attacks on 9/11 are sitting on what is now two decades worth of frustration with no end in sight. Carol Rosenberg, reporter for The New York Times, who's been covering Guantanamo since the beginning joins to put forth her solution. Then, Former United States Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, weighs in on the matter in addition to the withdrawing of US Troops in Afghanistan.
