NY Times: “The Obama administration said Monday that it had transferred two longtime detainees from the United States military prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, to Serbia. The announcement came one day after officials disclosed the transfer of a prisoner to Italy, suggesting that all three former detainees left on the same plane.
The transfers of the prisoners underscored that even though Congress has most likely thwarted President Obama in his effort to close the prison before he leaves office, he is still pursuing a lesser goal: getting out every detainee on a list of those recommended for transfer if security and humane-treatment conditions can be met in the receiving country.”
