    In this photo, leg shackles are seen on the floor of a detention center, at the U.S. Naval Base, in Guantanamo Bay – Cuba, on January 21st, 2009. President Barack Obama set a one-year deadline to close the controversial U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to an executive order that may bolster the U.S. image abroad. President Obama pledged during his election campaign to shutter the prison camp, which became a blot on the United States’ human rights record and a symbol of detainee abuse and detention without charge under the Bush administration.
