9/11 Suspects Trials To Be Held At Guantanamo Bay

    President Obama promised to close the Guantanamo prison by the end of his first year in office, but that deadline passed with no action as the administration confronted the hard reality of finding countries willing to accept custody of the inmates

    Good, the base at Guantanamo is where it should have been held when Bush was in office.


    <a href="/users/1111/randy-palmer/">@Randy Palmer</a> - TU!!!

    Attorney General Eric Holder will formally announce the decision at 2 p.m. ET on Monday, U.S. officials said, an embarrassing reversal of the administration's decision in November 2009 to try Mohammed in a court near the site of the World Trade Center attack that killed nearly 3,000 people.
    The decision was an admission that Obama has not been able to overcome political opposition to his efforts to close the prison for terrorism suspects and enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay and try those accused of crimes in U.S. civilian courts.
    A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Monday the Obama administration had no choice but to pursue military commission trials after Congress in December adopted restrictions on prosecuting Guantanamo prisoners in civilian courts.

    Funny, I remember Obama talking about closing the base at Guantanamo? Must have been before he was privy to all the information?


    <a href="/users/1635/leeroy/">@leeroy</a> - I guess it would be safe to say...Obama has become privy to classified daily intelligence briefings!!!


    or brainwashed?

    Well well well. Looks like Mr Hope and Change is sticking with ANOTHER one of GWB's great ideas.


    <a href="/users/1959/tsc/">@TSC</a> - George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld covered up that hundreds of innocent men were sent to the Guantánamo Bay prison camp because they feared that releasing them would harm the push for war in Iraq and the broader War on Terror.

    They should be given a trial found guilty and lynched publically

    Watch the documentary called The Road to Guantanamo Bay.. they hold false prisoners there. It's theatre. Who are these 9/11 prisoners?.. it's all lies.
