Who's on the Gitmo guest list?

The Pentagon releases the names of 558 prisoners -- including 20 Chinese nationals
Via Tim Dickinson at Rolling Stone, here's a list of names of Gitmo prisoners and their nationalities. The list of names refer to approximately three-quarters of the prisoners who have passed through Gitmo since 2002. The AP estimated that there are 490 prisoners there now. Looking over the list, I counted one from Canada, five from the U.K., one from Iraq, and Dickinson counted 20 from China. The Independent reports that nearly 2/3 come from Saudi Arabia (132), Afghanistan (125) and Yemen (107).
