From the article

“Since we found out about these transfers, members of Congress have had serious concerns based on intelligence assessments and past performance by Qatar,” said a Congressional investigator who was not authorized to comment publicly on the matter.

The State Department’s concerns about Qatar’s supervision of released militants were detailed in a diplomatic cable dated February 2009 by the U.S. embassy in Doha, Qatar’s capital, citing the case of Jarallah al-Marri, a former Guantanamo detainee released to Qatar in July 2008.

In the cable, the U.S. embassy criticized Qatar for failing to follow through on promises to bar al Marri from leaving Qatar, noting he made two trips to Britain since his release from Guantanamo, and that during his second visit, in early 2009, British authorities arrested him.

I don’t expect anything different this time. The guys might stay put for a while but if they want to leave before their year is up the won’t have much trouble. The year wait is kind of silly, I don’t think it will make any difference.
