WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Three detainees held at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have been sent to Ireland and Yemen, the Justice Department said on Saturday, the latest transfers as President Barack Obama tries to close the controversial facility by January.
Yemeni Alla Ali Bin Ali Ahmed was sent to his home country, while two other detainees were sent to Ireland, the U.S. government said, adding it would not identify the two at the request of the government of Ireland.

So bizzarre...
That we would assist Obama to fulfill the rediculous promsie that he would close an unpopular prison... But that doesnt mean he would release the prisoners. Closing Guantanamo Bay was pure PR - the prisoners still stay - but somewhere else!

What's the story with these guys, are they free to resettle in Ireland, or are they being placed in prisons here? Have they been charged with anything?

there is some information on them here, in the second half of the article. it seems there is less info on the 2 coming to ireland, because the americans haven't released their names, at the request of the irish government.

Bad day's work. Brian Cowen can take full responsibility for his actions.....and for their actions and the actions of their descendants.

Why can't they go back to their homelands and be with their families and friends? Why are they in exile here or would they prefer to be here?

These men should take a case to the courts to clarify their legal status.

An absolute disgrace that Ireland is getting involved with America's toxic waste. The rate we're going, there'll be bombs going off at airports soon.

Why is it not possible for these men to return home? Such detainees have a right to a trial. Consequently they are either innocent in which case they are entitled to go or guilty and that includes home, where ever home is or guilty and serve a prison term, after which they have aright to go home too. We've been told these men have no connection to Al Qaeda so why ar they being sent here?
As soon as they cop our present situation they may wish to leave!

And I'm confident given all the same chances and resources as their non-Muslim counterparts there should be no issues whatsoever. Though we shouldn't be patting the Irish government on the back, they did after all facilitate and maybe even prolong Guantanamo by allowing rendition stopovers. They should be ashamed that they have offered so little in restitution.

I am glad they are no longer being tortured but i would prefer that another country had taken them in, they will need to be watched. It is a fact that most of those detained by the West during these wars were complete innocents.... yet still, a whole lot of 'unknown' surrounds them.

Just what every European country needs.....more Muslims. Stand by for "family reunification" on a heroic scale, wives and children appearing from everywhere to cruise our streets within tent. Wonderful.

Not a shred of evidence that any rendition took place through Irish airports.

What if they continue the jihad in Ireland?

Dermot Ahern says he will be keeping a close eye on them. Let's see. 24/7 hours is 168 hours. Including breaks etc that will be about 10 full-time Garda detectives.

Absolutely - someone must save you from yourselves.

A right of every Irish citizen I believe.
