WASHINGTON  — US President Barack Obama said on Friday that his administration has fallen short in his goal of closing the Guantanamo Bay detention center.

Speaking at a White House news conference, Obama said he still believes the American justice system is capable of prosecuting, convicting and holding terrorists who have attacked US.

He said that while the issue of trying terror suspects in US courts has generated heated political rhetoric, he is willing to work with lawmakers to move in that direction.
