House Passes Amendment Banning Obama From Releasing Any More Gitmo Detainees

It’s going to be interesting how this plays out, given that it’s part of the entire defense spending bill.

Excerpted from The Hill: A defense spending bill would prevent transferring any detainees out of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility under an amendment passed Wednesday.

The proposal to tighten restrictions comes after a report that at least a dozen former detainees have gone on to launch attacks that killed about a half-dozen American.

Richard Hudson (R-N.C.), the sponsor of the amendment. “How can this administration guarantee these prisoners won’t return to the battlefield? The fact is they can’t.”

The amendment was passed by voice vote, and no roll call vote was requested.

The measure would prohibit using funds to transfer a Guantánamo detainee to “any other location.”

If signed into law, Hudson’s amendment would be the strictest prohibition on transfers yet. Keep reading
