Half of prisoners still held in Guantánamo have actually been cleared for release

“Released” has become a meaningless word at Guantánamo Bay for nearly 90 detainees who continue to be held after the U.S. government said they could be freed.

President Barack Obama’s interagency Guantánamo Review Task Force approved the release of 126 prisoners in early 2010. Of this total, 87 have not been let out, remaining instead behind bars at the military detention facility along with another 82 detainees who received no official clearance for release.
