Tell the State Department's new Guantanamo envoy Cliff Sloan that the prisoners cleared for release must be sent home now!
Of the 166 prisoners, 86 have been cleared for release and must be released. The last time a prisoner left Guantanamo was September 2012. Fifty-seven of the cleared detainees are from Yemen and the present government—a US ally—wants these men returned home. One cleared detainee is a British citizen, Shaker Aamer. He has been cleared for release twice, but is still behind bars after 11 years. Kuwaiti prisoner Fouzi Al Awda, has been held for 11 years while the Kuwaiti government, another US ally, has repeatedly called for his repatriation.
