President Obama is planning to transfer at least 22 additional Guantanamo Bay detainees out of the military detention center before he leaves office later this month, DailyMail.com has learned.
The group being released will be drawn from those held at Guantanamo - who include an accused senior al Qaeda bomb-maker, the terror group's top financial manager, and two intended 9/11 hijackers, who have all been held in the Cuba-based U.S. detention facility for more than a decade.
According to a military source briefed on the process, 22 detainees are being prepared for transfer out of the camp, also known as Gitmo, before January 20.
Although the White House has not specified which inmates will be transferred out or which foreign countries have agreed to accept them it has indicated that this will be a priority for Obama in his final days in office.
'I can't speak to any individual notifications that have been made to Congress or give you a specific preview about upcoming transfers,' said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.
Riled: Trump wrote on Twitter that the remaining 'Gitmo' inmates 'are extremely dangerous people' - hinting at the reaction when Obama's official transfers begin
'I think I would expect at this point additional transfers to be announced before January 20th.'
Obama will likely focus on moving the 23 detainees who have been 'cleared for transfer' a group that includes the alleged head of al Qaeda's bomb-manufacturing operation in eastern Afghanistan, the head of al Qaeda's Tunisian faction in Afghanistan, and senior weapons trainers.
Those held in Guantanamo in recent years have been dubbed 'the worst of the worst' by military and intelligence officials.

of course he’s letting them out. they can’t murder any more Christians or Jews or Hindus or anyone else if they’re stuck in Guantanamo...
I expect him to empty out the prisons for all who have converted to Islam while in prison.
Track them and Drone them, or get a bunch of SpecOps guys to ‘Ronda Rousey’ them.
Congress needs to stop this.
ISIS exploded after similar releases.
This really does seem like treason.
Does the Obama Regime consider ISIL a "foreign country"?
Let them go with a two hour head start. No fixed or rotary wing aircraft allowed.
Good hunting gentleman.
This begs the question: WHERE IS THE BLIND SHEIK, AND IF HE IS IN CUSTODY WHERE IS THE PROOF OF THAT?
Can’t we just invoke the 25th amendment right now?
It is the Russians! They are Hacking Obama.
>>or get a bunch of SpecOps guys to Ronda Rousey them.
Umm NO. Ronda still has the back of her head intact. These people need cranial ventilation.
He is serving his life sentence at the Butner Federal Medical Center in North Carolina.
What is the 25th amendment? .........Insanity of the current President?
Infect them with something!
“Congress needs to stop this.
ISIS exploded after similar releases.

There HAS to be some kind of red tape that can be thrown in the path of this to stop him. This worthless asshole seems to be determined to hurt our country as much as possible before he leaves his job as vacationer-in-chief.
Surely there isn’t anyone out there that doesn’t now realize this guy is an enemy of America. His actions tell all.
“There HAS to be some kind of red tape that can be thrown in the path of this to stop him.”
Yes. I would think so.
