Task force clears 75 for release

September 29, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A list released by the U.S. military shows that at least 75 Guantanamo detainees have been cleared for release by a task force that has been sorting through the remaining prisoners as part of an Obama administration effort to close the prison by early next year.

Navy Lt. Cmdr. Brook DeWalt, a spokesman for the prison in Cuba that holds about 223 men, said the list was posted in common areas throughout the detention camps earlier this month to communicate directly with detainees.
