Outgoing President Barack Obama has transferred 10 prisoners from the U.S. military detention center in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba to Oman on his way out of the White House.

As of 10:30 AM Monday, the Pentagon had not announced the transfers as it has consistently done in the past. The identities and nationalities of the prisoners remained unknown at the time.

Nevertheless, the government of Oman announced it has received the 10 jihadists, saying in a statement it responded to a request from the Obama administration and acted “out of consideration for the men’s humanitarian situation.”

“At the request of Sultan Qaboos and the US government for a solution to the question of Guantánamo detainees, 10 of these detainees arrived today in the sultanate to reside here temporarily,” the state-controlled Oman News Agency (ONA) quotes the ministry as saying.

Oman, which sits on the eastern edge of the Arabian peninsula and is bordered by Saudi Arabia and war-ravaged Yemen, has been ruled ruled by Sultan Qaboos bin Said since 1970.

    Appears the Turbaned Turd in the WH is making hay while the sun still shines and we may as well prepare for more monkey shines before Friday. His Grand Finale might be to call Martial Law on Thursday with nation wide riots put on by his “Army” of Muslims, illegals and blacks.

  • texexpatriate says:

    Every single one of the Guantanamo prisoners should have been executed after interrogation. There would be no prisoners to transfer had that been done. In the future maybe that will be the policy for Muslim terrorists and jihadists.

    Wonder how much money is the “freedom” of each one of these terrorists is worth to those that helps them escape beginning from day one.

  • justinwachin says:

    It will be interesting to see how long it takes for these prisoners to make their way back to the battlefield.

    President Obama has a legacy of making poor choices. This is another one of them. At least Obama’s reign of error is about over.

      As soon as they evade the Watch dogs hired by Obama to look the other way.

    Another treasonous act. Trump could stop this by guaranteeing that those transferred will be droned.

      Trump can’t stop anything until Friday.

        Come Monday Morning we will see how the media rakes him over the dead coals.

          Unfortunately the media will keep this up for his full term. These are sick people. Still pissed off because Killary lost. LOL…several time!!

          1. Retired says:

            After he shuts the trash baggers out and ignores the problem people, there will not be much to write about.
            It will be fake news like the last two years with pushing Clinton.

          2. gvette says:

            Well, you know the left. they’ll make it up, as they go!

  • GrizzMann says:

    Wasn’t Congress to have been notified of the movements in advance? Another pen and phone deal?

    1. Tiger says:

      Yes that was put into affect long ago and Congress complained once then shut up and let O do his thing.
