Faizal Saha Al Nasir (born 1980) is a citizen of Saudi Arabia who was held in extrajudicial detention in the United States Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba.[1] Al Nasir's Guantanamo Internment Serial Number was 437. American intelligence analysts estimate Al Nasir was born in 1980 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


The official documents from the US Department of Defense, and from the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia, Washington DC transliterate Al Nasir's name differently:

  • His name was transliterated as Faizal Saha Al Nasir on the DoD's official lists.[1]
  • His name was transliterated as Faisal Salih Bireikan Al-Nasser on the press releases from Saudi officials, when he was repatriated on February 21, 2007.[2][3]
