Biden Should Appoint Envoy for Closing Guantanamo, Ex-Muslim Chaplain at Gitmo Says
"It is also my hope that President Biden appoint a Guantanamo special envoy, as did President Obama, to oversee, coordinate and facilitate the repatriation of prisoners. A Guantanamo special envoy is quite necessary since other nations must be involved to accept prisoners that are being released and would certainly help speed up the process," Yee, who was one of the first Muslim imams in the US military, said.
"Just over a month after taking office, President Biden launched a formal review of the prison at Guantanamo with the aim at closing it. Since taking office, the Biden Administration has already repatriated one Guantanamo prisoner and cleared five more for release," he said.
