This is the list of detainees currently held at Guantánamo. McClatchy Newspapers and The Miami Herald consulted court and other public records as well as sources in tandem with secret U.S. military intelligence summaries provided by WikiLeaks to determine who was still being held there.
Clicking on the name will take you to the summary, which is based on U.S. intelligence that was considered valid at the time the summary was written, although the captives' attorneys generally dispute these findings.
In most cases, the summary also includes a photo of the detainee. The Obama administration said in September 2012 that it had cleared 56 men for release without conditions, and identified 55 who should be repatriated to their homelands or transferred to other countries. Congressional restrictions prevent the vast majority of those transfers.
Note: No intelligence summary was available for two detainees, who were processed after the era that the Wikileaks documents captured. Instead we are providing links to the Defense Department news releases announcing their transfer to Guantánamo.
