The prisoner allowed himself to get excited, to think about Moroccan food, imagining he would be home in no time.A diplomatic agreement that would have allowed him to go free was not returned by Morocco until Dec. 28, eight days too late to meet a deadline to be among the last prisoners to leave under President Barack Obama.Now, he is one of five prisoners who the U.S. cleared to go but whose freedom is in doubt under President Donald Trump.Obama sought to close the detention center but was thwarted by Congress because of objections over transferring any of the remaining detainees to facilities in the U.S.A task force that included agencies such as the Defense Department and CIA analyzed who was held at Guantanamo and determined who could be released and who should continue in detention.The 41 remaining prisoners include the five approved for transfer and 10 who have been charged by military commission.The other three have been approved for release by the task force since at least 2010 .
