The Defense Department on Wednesday announced it has released a suspected terrorist from facilities in Guatanamo Bay, and said the move fits with the Obama administration’s broader plan to close those facilities.

According to the department, an interagency review board found that the prisoner, Fouzi Khalid Abdullah Al Awda, does not pose a “significant threat” to the United States. As a result, he will be transferred to the government of Kuwait, which the Defense Department thanked for helping it to close down Guantanamo Bay.

“The United States is grateful to the government of Kuwait for its willingness to support ongoing U.S. efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility,” the department said in a statement. “The United States coordinated with the government of Kuwait to ensure this transfer took place consistent with appropriate security and humane treatment measures.”

The administration has long sought to close the facilities, which Democrats believe only foster more terrorist acts against the United States. Obama is known to be pushing for its closure in the last two years of his presidency.

    Someone please explain to me why we should close Gitmo? Where are we suppose to put war prisoners?

    I’m starting to wonder just who the Department of Defense is defending. Somebody risked their life capturing this terrorist and the traitors in our government turn them loose. Hagel is nothing but a political hack, and has no business in the position he’s in.
    This is the gratitude we get for saving Kuwait and their oil fields from the butcher of Baghdad,

    Don’t those guys in the background of the photo look happy to be there? The one guy hiding behind Obola is the only one that could be smiling. Maybe because he is waving goodbye and they can all leave.

    Obama and his family members should replace those prisoners released.
