What Will Become Of Guantanmo Bay Prisoners?

by | 1st, May 2007

WHAT will become of the Guantanmo Bay prisoners? Is there a sink estate in Sheffield we can house them in? Or is that too cruel and inhumane?

This from the Washington Post:

“More than a fifth of the approximately 385 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have been cleared for release but may have to wait months or years for their freedom because U.S. officials are finding it increasingly difficult to line up places to send them, according to Bush administration officials and defense lawyers.

“Since February, the Pentagon has notified about 85 inmates or their attorneys that they are eligible to leave after being cleared by military review panels. But only a handful have gone home, including a Moroccan and an Afghan who were released Tuesday. Eighty-two remain at Guantanamo and face indefinite waits as U.S. officials struggle to figure out when and where to deport them, and under what conditions.”
