Guantanamo Bay Starts Transferring it’s Inmates

On December 20, 2014, the United States government released four intimates from the Guantanamo Bay facility.

Many are familiar with the reputation that the Guantanamo Bay facility has achieved, and how it is responsible for holding some of the most dangerous men in America and abroad. The four prisoners were natives of Afghanistan, and have been serving time for ten years now. The inmates, Shawali Khan, Khi Ali Gul, Abdul Ghani and Mohammed Zahir, were all arrested and detained for either aiding in or participating in terroristic activities. But, they are seen as low level operatives who’s threat is currently minimal. The new president of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani, had requested these men be released. President Obama believes in the new leaders ability to help rebuild and maintain diplomacy in Afghanistan. So, he had officials from Afghanistan fly in, and have the prisoners transferred accordingly.

The prisoner’s departures lowers the number of inmates at Guantanamo Bay from 136 to 132. The four men will be handed over to the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan who will decide what to do with them.

President Obama is in the process of working on transferring all the inmates at Guantanamo Bay, in hopes to one day shut down the facility once and for all; a promise he had made in 2009. Obama has established a team who is in the process of reviewing all the inmates’ backgrounds and cases. Over sixty inmates are in the process of being transferred from the facility within the next couple of months. While many people are ready to criticize the president, he is trying to rebuild the image of America.
