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.
