The government is implanting trackable microchips into Guantanamo Bay detainees prior to their release using nano technology first tested on U.S. troops, according to a Marine and other high-level sources.

In 2010, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah asked the Obama administration to implant the microchips into the detainees to track their movements upon release, according to WikiLeaks, and now it appears the Pentagon agreed to the request.

“It’s actually a program that started off being used on our troops ourselves voluntarily,” the Marine said, which corresponds to tips received from other sources. “Being young and dumb and signing off paperwork [for implantable chips] thinking you’re going to do something special, such as myself.”

“I started going into a chemical, biological, radiological response team and you sign up for these things thinking they’re going to help you.”
