According to a State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity, 12 of the men are from Yemen and three are Afghans.The Pentagon has previously struggled to find a third country to take Yemeni detainees, given that they can’t go home because of the civil war in their nation.”The United States is grateful to the government of the United Arab Emirates for its humanitarian gesture and willingness to support ongoing US efforts to close” Guantanamo, the Pentagon said in a statement.Once transferred, former inmates are usually freed subject to supervision and undergoing rehabilitation programs.Amnesty International USA welcomed the announcement as a sign President Barack Obama is serious about closing the controversial facility before he leaves office.
