There are currently 80 men detained at Guantanamo. The United States transferred nine detainees to Saudi Arabia in April and ten to Oman earlier this year.

In 2009, Obama pledged to close the notorious Cuba-based detention center amid mounting concerns about human rights abuses committed by US personnel against detainees.
