U.S. Halts Transfers to Yemen

The United States will stop the transfer of terror detainees to Yemen, though the administration still plans to close Guantanamo Bay, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday. On Sunday, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) called for such a move, saying "It would be irresponsible to take any of the Yemeni detainees in Guantanamo and send them back to Yemen.”
