(WASHINGTON) — In the early years after 9/11, the CIA turned some Guantanamo Bay prisoners into double agents then sent them home to help the U.S. kill terrorists, current and former U.S. officials said.
The CIA promised the prisoners freedom, safety for their families and millions of dollars from the agency’s secret accounts.
For the first time since 2009, Obama stands a chance of winding down detention at Guantanamo Bay, but some Democrats still oppose his plans.
