9-11 Trials Back To Guantanamo

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

The truth is Congress made it impossible for them to have this trial in New York City. Congress has had a series of bills that say you will not spend a penny of taxpayer's money to put them on trial on U.S. soil. They have forbidden the use of money, any federal funds to bring them to the United States, anyone from Guantanamo for any purpose, trial, detention, release if they were found to be wrongfully held. Congress blocked the administration into a corner, they cornered Eric Holder, and that's what he said yesterday. He said I believe the right place for these trials is Manhattan but they've made it impossible and we need to get these trials over with.

How to Prosecute a Terrorist

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

The Obama administration made a bold decision in November 2009 that divided the country, which was still scarred by the events of September 11, 2001. Attorney General Eric Holder announced the self-proclaimed mastermind of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and four other detainees allegedly tied to the attacks, would be tried in a civilian court in New York City, just blocks away from where the Twin Towers stood. After battling Congress for over a year, Holder reversed his decision and announced yesterday those same men will now be tried before a military commission at the Guantanamo Bay detention center.
