The five terrorists (dubbed the Taliban's "Dream Team") — who were released from Guantanamo Bay back in 2014 by then-President Barack Obama in exchange for U.S. Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl — ended up rejoining the Taliban at its political office in Qatar.

Guantánamo continues to operate as a symbol of Islamophobia that embodies the fear-mongering & xenophobia that defines Trump’s presidency. When Trump revoked Obama’s order to close the prison, he opened the door for new era of human rights violations. https://t.co/ceTp3mdN9d
Tomorrow marks 17 years since Guantanamo opened as a lawless prison of torture for Muslims. This month also marks one decade since Obama signed an Executive Order ordering the closure of Guantanamo before 2010. We are still bearing witness to this atrocity. #CloseGitmo https://t.co/fCAAyqOMP8
In advance of the 17th anniversary of the opening of the #Guantanamo Bay military prison, we call for all detainees currently cleared to be transferred immediately. #CloseGuantanamo
18 años después, el campo de prisioneros #Guantanamo continúa siendo un "agujero negro" en el derecho internacional, ilegalidad flagrante indigna de un país que se diga democrático. Pisoteando los derechos del hombre que proclamaron los "padres fundadores" https://t.co/6MORkQoIwr
#Cuba Hoy comienzo el día con una triste noticia: el cuarto accidente de tránsito que involucra a un ómnibus de pasajeros en menos de un mes: Siete fallecidos y más de 30 heridos en Guantánamo al volcarse un vehículo de #Viazul. https://t.co/8M0suS26Vt #CarreterasMortales
Today marks the 17th anniversary of the opening of Guantanamo Bay. Guantanamo is illegal, ineffective and un-American, and it's time President Trump closed the facility for good. https://t.co/MFVl5NBp38
Seventeen years ago today, the Pentagon opened its temporary terror prison at Guantánamo’s Camp X-Ray with the first 20 captives from Afghanistan. My Day 1 @MiamiHerald dispatch.
Gitmo now: 40 captives, one convicted of war crimes.
From Reprieve US Chair Eric Lewis: Guantanamo is a monument to the death of the rule of law. It is here that being a foreign Muslim in the wrong place at the wrong time can result in a life sentence, without charge or trial. https://t.co/NOsJjCy37J
Today marks 17 yrs since detainees first arrived at #Guantanamo. Dozens remain held indefinitely.

The former commander of Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was indicted this week for allegedly misleading investigators about the circumstances leading up to a man’s death there four years ago. https://t.co/1zDnABU3bh
If @realDonaldTrump wants to declare a national emergency, how about declaring that 17 years ago today, we abandoned the Constitution and morality by opening an illegal prison at Guantanamo Bay, and he’s closing it immediately to return us to the rule of law? #CloseGuantanamo
Today, Jan. 11, the disgraceful prison at #Guantanamo has been open for 17 years; that's 6,120 long and unforgivable days of imprisonment without charge or trial - and, of course, years of torture and abuse.... https://t.co/CnWAjKiamu
Astonishingly, depressingly, Guantánamo is STILL open 17 years to the day that the first detainees were taken there. There are 40 people still jailed at the camp.
By WAT friend John Marchese:
Taking our calls for justice one step further, once the closure of the detention center is finally complete, it is doubtless long past time to return full... https://t.co/LlCIWNeHcb
@DearAuntCrabby@BoycottUtah Yeah - well... who wouldn’t.?
A minor living adjustment : going from living the shamelessly opulent multimillionaire lifestyle to a typical white collar criminal in the American Prison System. - By the way, I don’t think he belongs there.
He belongs in Guantanamo.!
"Es una canción de marketing, de precios. Y para que nadie se imagine que soy santo, voy a poner el mío: El levantamiento del bloqueo a Cuba y la entrega incondicional del territorio Cubano que Estados Unidos usa como base naval en Guantánamo."
