Four Gitmo detainees transferred

The prisoners released were Shawali Khan, Khi Ali Gul, Abdul Ghani and Mohammed Zahir, according to the Pentagon. The Guantanamo Review Task Force reviewed the case and unanimously approved the transfer of the detainees, and Congress was notified of the move. "These guys, at worst, could be described as low level but that's even a stretch," a senior administration official told NBC News. The detainees left Guantanamo Friday morning and landed in Afghanistan later in the day, according to the official.
