The day after the Pentagon announced the transfer of four Guantanamo Bay detainees to Saudi Arabia, the Daily Mail reported that President Barack Obama is set to release at least 18 more detainees before the Jan. 20 inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

James Mitchell, a former CIA interrogator, joined "Fox & Friends" Friday to discuss these Gitmo transfers, saying there could be a danger to Americans.

"The difficulty now with letting people go is what's left is the worst of the worst. ... He's (Obama) not transferring prisoners; he's letting terrorists go," said Mitchell, author of "Enhanced Interrogation." "What you're doing is returning to the battlefield people who are well fed, rested and have had some of the best medical care on the planet."

According to the office of the director of National Intelligence, 208 of the 693 detainees -- nearly one-third -- released under President George W. Bush or President Obama are confirmed or suspected to have returned to terrorism.

Trump has been adamant about his stance of no further releases from the Cuba prison.

"If what you have left is the worst of the worst, why would you want to take the risk?" Mitchell said.
