Eleven at Gitmo Sent to Home Countries......

Eleven detainees at the military prison at Guantanamo Bay--eight Afghans and three Jordanians-- have been transferred to the custody of their home countries, the Pentagon said Sunday. The men were flown out of the naval base in Cuba after a military review was conducted gauging whether the prisoners have intelligence value or pose a threat to the United States. About 320 detainees remain at Guantanamo on suspicion of links to al-Quaeda or the Taliban, including 80 deemed eligible for transfer or release. I wonder if these detainees will be given money and released once they arrive home by their governments. That happened to all the Saudi Arabian detainees sent back to Saudi Arabia.
