In the wake of the San Bernardino attacks and in the midst of the Christmas season, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah is set to release another 17 Islamic jihadis from Guantanamo Bay, the largest transfer of detainees since 2007.
The New York Times reports:
The Obama administration appears to be on the cusp of the largest round of transfers of Guantánamo Bay detainees in a single month since 2007, a move that could reduce the detainee population there to as low as 90 by mid- to late January, according to officials familiar with internal deliberations.
Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter has notified Congress in recent days that he has approved 17 proposed transfers of lower-level detainees, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss matters that have not yet been made public. Congress has required Mr. Carter to certify that security standards have been met at least 30 days before any transfers.
