Armed Services Committee Passes Legislation to Restrict Transfer of Guantanamo Detainees

Contact: Kevin Bishop (864) 250-1417 or Lorcan Connick (202) 224-5972

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today voted in support of legislation that would restrict transfers of detainees from Guantanamo Bay in order to best protect Americans and our national security.

The legislation passed through the Senate Armed Services Committee by a vote of 14-12.

"In light of the Taliban 5 and other provocative releases made by the Obama Administration, it's only appropriate that we call a time-out," said Graham. "The Obama Administration seems more concerned about fulfilling their campaign promise to close Gitmo than protecting our national security. Now is not the time to be sending radical Islamic terror groups reinforcements from Gitmo."
