33 More Guantanamo Detainees Sent Home
In addition to the Afghan detainees released last week, the Pentagon has announced that an additional 33 detainees have been sent back to their home countries. There are 395 detainees still at Guantanamo, only a small fraction of whom have been charged with a crime.
Despite the fact that 16 were sent to Saudi Arabia, the Washington Post says:
State Department officials have been working to reducesignificantly reduce the number of Guantanamo detainees through lengthy negotiations with other countries, although the United States is unwilling to release detainees into the custody of nations where they would likely be abused, tortured or killed.
Hello? Saudi Arabia doesn't torture prisoners?
