Salem Bin Kanad didn't attend his parole board hearing on Monday, April 21, 2014, and didn't have an attorney represent him. An unnamed U.S. military official said he'd like to be reunited with family in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. A January 2014 U.S. military intelligence profile of Kanad, now in his late 30s, describes him as a Yemeni and not a particularly dangerous prisoner. It said, he "has not presented significant force-protection problems while at the Guantánamo Bay detention facility and has participated in only a few mass disturbances." The Miami Herald got this U.S. military photo of Kanad from a 2008 prison camp intelligence assessment provided to McClatchy Newspapers by the anti-secrecy Wikileaks organization.
