Unconfirmed reports that 10 detainees went to Oman today.

Read more here.

The New York Times has more here.

Because of the Martin Luther King holiday the military did not release the names of the men released yesterday.,.
they are:
Ghaleb Nassar Al Bihani, Mustafa Abd al-Qawi Abd al-Aziz Al-Shamiri, Karim Bostam, Abdul Sahir, Musab Omar Ali Al-Mudwani, Hail Aziz Ahmed Al-Maythali, Salman Yahya Hassan Mohammad Rabei'i, Mohammed Al-Ansi, Muhammad Ahmad Said Haider, and Walid Said bin Said Zaid.

I recognize a few of those names- men who were in the same guest house in Pakistan as my remaining client- It is a travesty that they were held so long but at least they are on their way (unlike my client).

You can read the defense department's announcement here.
