FOX News: Pentagon: Nearly half of remaining Guantanamo detainees slated for transfer

Nearly half of the detainees remaining at Guantanamo Bay are slated for transfer, a Pentagon official confirmed to Fox News.

Of the 76 remaining detainees, 34 have been approved for transfer to countries that have agreed to accept them, according to spokeswoman Valerie Henderson.

Thirty-two other detainees are slated to have their cases heard by a Department of Defense review board.

Ten other detainees at Gitmo cannot be transferred based on the severity of the charges they face.
