The U.S. government traded five Guantanamo Bay detainees for U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl on Saturday. In the afternoon, Time said it "confirmed their [the detainees] identities with a senior administration official."
On April 24, 2011, Wikileaks began to publish secret files that profiled every Guantanamo Bay detainee. According to the files, the detainees exchanged today were all born in Afghanistan and members of the Taliban. All were held for about 12 years. And all of them were recommended for continued detention. They were all labeled as a high risk to the U.S., its interests, and allies. And one of them was directly connected to Osama bin Laden.
Examiner located the file and photo of each detainee.
