Before he can close Guantanamo, Barack Obama must decide what to do with the 250 detainees still there. About 80 are scheduled to be tried and will serve their sentences in their home countries, USA Today reports. The Pentagon has approved the release of 60 more, but has not found countries to accept them. That leaves 110 alleged terrorists deemed too dangerous to be let out.
Of the “Gitmo 110,” analysis by terrorism experts found that 46% fought in Afghanistan or elsewhere, 48% participated in the al-Qaeda recruiting network, and 72% have attended a training camp. But while some are experienced terrorists, other members of the Gitmo 110 are lower-level but "committed" operatives from Yemen, whose government the Pentagon says will not monitor them.
