Bin Laden driver released from Guantanamo, headed home

The Pentagon early Tuesday morning sent Osama bin Laden's driver home to Yemen, a month before the first Guantanamo captive convicted of war crimes by a military jury completed his 66-month prison sentence. Salim Hamdan, 40, had been held prisoner by American forces for seven years. The Pentagon had argued that it could continue holding Hamdan even after his sentence expired Dec. 27.
