Gitmo Releases: What Are The Odds They'll Return To Terror?
As part of President Obama's effort to empty out Guantanamo Bay prison, six detainees were transferred to Oman Saturday.By Elizabeth Hagedorn | June 13, 2015
There are now 116 detainees left at Guantanamo Bay prison. Six transfers arrived in Oman Saturday.
