According to documents on the Politico website, the Obama administration is planning the release or transfer of about one third of the prisoners from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay before the election.
Most of the 55 scheduled for released are Yemeni detainees whose release was halted in 2010 because of the unstable situation in Yemen at the time.
Overjoyed with the prospect of liberating terrorists the SOF community bagged and tagged, the ACLU says the release is a “partial victory for transparency.”
In a related story, the Cleveland Leader reports the leader of the September 11th attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was a terrorist released from Guantanamo Bay. Sufyan Ben Qumu was reportedly Osama bin Laden’s driver.
