‘Scrambling To Release As Many Prisoners As Possible’

SEC DEF: ‘We're Not Going To Be Able To Close Gitmo By Magically Making Safe Everybody Who's In There’

“Obama administration rushing to shrink ranks at Guantanamo: The Obama administration … officials are scrambling to release as many prisoners as possible…” (“Obama Administration Rushing To Shrink Ranks At Guantanamo,” AP, 6/5/16)

“[T]here have been Americans that have died because of Gitmo detainees.” (Defense Department Special Envoy For Guantanamo Closure, 3/23/16)

‘Obama Administration Rushing To Shrink Ranks At Guantanamo

“Of the 80 remaining detainees, 30 have been cleared for an overseas transfer. Most will leave starting in late June and continuing into July, according to a U.S. official. Those prisoners will go to a number of countries, including at least one in Europe, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the administration had not authorized public release of the information.” (“Obama Administration Rushing To Shrink Ranks At Guantanamo,” AP, 6/5/16)
