One of the 10 released yesterday....

Among them was Fahd Ghazy, who has been imprisoned at Guantánamo since he was just 17 years old.
“Almost 14 years ago to the day, Fahd arrived at Guantánamo as a boy, shackled and hooded,” his attorney Omar Farah said in a press statement. “Today — finally — he is free.”
As for Fahd Ghazy, he is now 31.
“There was never much doubt that Fahd’s imprisonment was unnecessary — he was cleared for release nearly a decade ago — yet he grew up at Guantánamo waiting for successive presidents to correct a glaring injustice,” his lawyer, Omar Farah said.  
Ghazy can now reclaim his life.
“I am not ISN 26,” he said. “That is the government’s number. My name is Fahd Ghazy. I am a human being, a man who is loved and who loves.”

This is what I meant when I said that Obama owns this mess.... Half the time that Ghazy was held  was under Obama's regime. And Ghazy was cleared for release that entire time.
