Congressional Blockage

The reason for the holdup at Guantánamo is Congress. Legislators have blocked the prisoners’ transfer to the U.S. to be tried or imprisoned, and also have conditioned the prisoners’ release to foreign countries upon security certification from the Secretary of Defense — a process that just simply has yet to happen.
