 Guantanamo Panel Approves Transfer of First High-Value Detainee

On Monday, a Somali man who has been held at Guantánamo Bay as a high-value prisoner was approved for transfer with security assurances, making him the first detainee who was brought there from a CIA black site to be recommended for release. Guled Hassan Duran, 47, who was captured in Djibouti in 2004, spent about 900 days in CIA custody and has been held in classified detention facilities at Guantánamo without charge since September 2006. He became one of the 39 detainees still at Guantánamo with approval for transfer once U.S. diplomats find countries to accept them with security guarantees that satisfy the Secretary of Defense.
