Latest Gitmo transfer raises concerns about ever-riskier releases to close camp

Dubbed the “forever detainee,” Al Awda was one of the first to arrive at Guantanamo Bay in 2002. Subsequent military reviews by both the Bush and Obama administrations found that he was a member of Al Qaeda, a recruiter and a courier. But as part of the push to fast track and reduce the number of detainees, last summer a new assessment by the Periodic Review Board deemed Al Awda a low risk transfer.

The case is the latest to raise concerns that the administration is making ever- riskier releases, in pursuit of the ultimate goal of closing the prison camp.
