Obama Likely to Transfer More Guantanamo Prisoners

The White House says U.S. President Barack Obama plans to transfer abroad more suspected terrorists held at the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, before he leaves office January 20, rebuffing President-elect Donald Trump's call to end such releases.

“There should be no further releases from Gitmo,” Trump said Tuesday, using a nickname for Guantanamo in one of several comments on Twitter he made on a variety of issues. “These are extremely dangerous people and should not be allowed back onto the battlefield.”

Just hours later, however, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, “I would expect, at this point, additional [prisoner] transfers” before Obama ends eight years as the U.S. chief executive and Trump is sworn in as the country's 45th president.

When Obama took office in January 2009, he vowed to close the prison in southeastern Cuba, saying the detention facility did not reflect American values to the world because many of the prisoners there have been held for years without trial, and some had been tortured.
