The Obama administration has released the names of 55 Guantánamo Bay prisoners who have been cleared for release. The names are part of a group of 86 prisoners who received approval to be transferred from Guantánamo three years ago but have remained in captivity. Guantánamo defense attorneys say the disclosure will make it easier to advocate for those identified but have urged the United States to reveal the remaining names and begin transfers without further delay.
