ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE (Reuters) - The White House is considering a "wide array" of options for closing the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, spokesman Josh Earnest said on Monday, declining to rule out executive action as an option.

Earnest said the best option for closing the prison, which President Barack Obama has made a priority, is a congressionally approved plan for transferring prisoners.
