ABC – Few at Guantanamo of intelligence value: US official: A Pentagon spokesman says only about 25 per cent of the 550 terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba are still of intelligence value, as the controversial jail nears its third year. Major Michael Shavers says the United States is negotiating the transfer of prisoners from Guantanamo to other countries even as it plans to build a more permanent prison for those left behind.
So is Blair saving face by claiming that all this time he’s been in negotiations, or are the US saving face by saying they were going to let them go (sort of) because they’d finished with the thumbscrews?
