Rubio at GITMO

Sen. Marco Rubio is at U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, his office said.

"As a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Rubio is traveling to Guantanamo Bay to conduct oversight of the facility, tour the base, and meet with the commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo Bay. This visit will allow Sen. Rubio an opportunity to better understand the role Guantanamo Bay plays in US detention operations, and examine how the military commission process for trying the terrorists housed there is proceeding," according to his office.

It's his first trip to Cuba.
