US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has provided the White House updated guidance on criteria for transferring any new individuals to the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba, a Pentagon spokeswoman said on Wednesday.“This policy provides our warfighters guidance on nominating detainees for transfer to Guantanamo detention should that person present a continuing, significant threat to the security of the United States,” said Commander Sarah Higgins.
