Guantanamo Detainees: Recidivism and Reengagement Upon Release


Elliot T. Murphy (Editor)

Series: Global Political Studies
BISAC: POL033000

The Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee undertook an in-depth, comprehensive bipartisan investigation of procedures to dispatch detainees from the Guantanamo Bay detention facility (GTMO) over the past decade. This included an examination of mechanisms intended to prevent former detainees from reengaging in terror-related activities. This book explores how the Bush and Obama administrations, in reaction to domestic political pressures and a desire to earn goodwill abroad, attempted to advance strategic national security goals, and “release” or “transfer” GTMO detainees elsewhere.
