In his last year in office, President Obama made a final push to clear out the controversial U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba — where the government has held terror suspects for years without charges — before President Trump took over. Tonight’s new FRONTLINE with NPR and WGBH News examines the process for releasing “indefinite detainees,” and explores what’s happened to one of the last men to be released before Trump took office.
