    Here’s where terrorists hail from

    January 03, 2017

    Where are terrorists from?  There is no agreed measure.  But one measure is the people held by the United States at Guantanamo Bay.  A total of 780 citizens of 49 countries have been held at Guantanamo at some point.  The vast majority has been freed; only a few dozen remain.  Here is the breakdown of Guantanamo detainees by nationality.  The seven countries that President Trump has targeted with his visa ban are highlighted.  Except for Yemen, they haven’t been big sources of terrorists.
