Meanwhile the judge that heard Slahi's request to force the military to conduct his review was not happy with the military's foot dragging.... "WASHINGTON—A federal judge chided U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday for pledging to close the Guantanamo detention facility while allowing the process for clearing detainees to drag on for years with no resolution in sight.
A 2011 executive order required a special board to review each detainee’s case within a year, with the aim of releasing those who officials from defense, intelligence and law enforcement agencies concluded don’t pose “a significant threat to the security of the United States.”
To date only 19 detainees have been reviewed, while 107 remain at the prison.
The judge made his remarks during a hearing on Tuesday over a lawsuit filed by one detainee, Mohamedou Ould Slahi, seeking to force the government to schedule his review."
Of course the real question is whether the good judge will do a darned thing about this.... Don't hold your breath.
