    A key report on US policy towards detainees at Guantanamo Bay has been delayed. The report is part of a promise from Barack Obama, the US president, to close down the detention centre.

    The delay has raised doubts about whether Obama will be able to meet his promise to close the facility within one year of coming into office.

    Al Jazeera's Clayton Swisher reports on how matters have changed six months after his pledge.
