They did manage to agree with many countries to send some of the sentenced interns, but there was that huge chunk of non-sentenced people in a legal limbo that couldn't be transfered to anywhere else. The idea was sending them to the US, granting them rights and transfering them to federal courts, but the House Reps screamed "What? Giving them rights? Having them on trial on our soil instead of in a foreign place?" and took away any funds for any federal prisons that would accept them. Then the States decided that they would not volunteer to be the first one to offer the federal Government a prison to keep them in. So the only option left was keeping them in Guantánamo and keep holding military pseudo-trials. It was either that or release them on the spot, which would have been... not the best option.
