US clears Kuwaiti detainee's release from military prison at Guantanamo Bay

The United States has cleared the release of a Kuwaiti man held at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for more than 12 years because of his suspected links to terrorism.

A board reviewing the cases of dozens of detainees ruled July 14 that Fawzi al-Odah no longer needs to be held for national security reasons.

In a statement on Friday, his attorney, Eric Lewis, praised Kuwaiti authorities for working with the U.S. on a post-release program, which includes keeping al-Odah in a rehabilitation center for at least a year.

Back in 2008, the Defense Department labeled him a high-risk detainee, saying he was believed to be a member of al-Qaida who had sworn allegiance to Osama bin Laden, the group's deceased leader.
