Obama transferring 2 prisoners from Gitmo to Algeria

WASHINGTON (AP)

The Obama administration is planning to transfer two Guantanamo Bay detainees to Algeria, the first movement of terrorist suspects from the prison since the president announced a renewed push to close the contentious military-run facility in Cuba.

The White House said Friday it was starting the transfers as part of President Barack Obama's goal to close the prison, a campaign promise that has eluded him since he took office.

The move signaled a new push to reduce the population of 166 detainees at the prison, where dozens are on a hunger strike to draw attention to their indefinite detention.

Just another form of "Amnesty" maybe?

They need to shut that disgraceful place down, transfer everyone out, then drop a Fuel Air Bomb on it.
