Hillary Clinton says President Barack Obama is signaling "strength and resolve" in his plan to close the military detention facility at Guantanamo Bay.

"I support President Obama’s plan today to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay and finally close the door on this chapter of our history," she declared in a statement Tuesday, The Hill reports. 

"Over the years, Guantanamo has inspired more terrorists than it has imprisoned. It has not strengthened our national security; it has damaged it."

Clinton's Democratic presidential rival Bernie Sanders also supports the closing — but announced his position while taking a shot at the former secretary of state.

"Sanders was one of only three senators to vote in 2007 against barring the transfer of Guantanamo detainees to America," his statement read, The Hill reports. "Then-Sen. Hillary Clinton voted for the amendment that kept the prison open."

Clinton's statement didn't respond to Sanders.
