US review boards cleared 46 Guantanamo detainees for transfer home

On December 25, 2005, the US Defense Department Administrative Review Boards (ARB) cleared 46 detainees for transfer from custody in the detention center at Guantanamo Bay to their respective home countries. While the ARB made the initial determination, the ultimate decision of who would be transferred was vested in Deputy Secretary of Defense Gordon England. In 2005, the ARB reviewed some 211 such cases and recommended continued detentions in 165 of those cases.
