Reality Check – Part 3.

Here is an interesting quote from your wikipedia link:

“If all on the "confirmed" list have indeed returned to the battlefield, that would amount to 4 percent of the detainees who have been released.[12]”

Here is another from the same source:

“A Spokesman said evidence of someone being "confirmed" could include fingerprints, a conclusive photograph or "well-corroborated intelligence reporting." He said the Pentagon would not discuss how the statistics were derived because of security concerns. National security expert and CNN analyst Peter Bergen, states that some of those "suspected" to have returned to terrorism are so categorized because they publicly made anti-American statements, "something that's not surprising if you've been locked up in a U.S. prison camp for several years."
