If Obama Closes Gitmo What Will Happen To Detainees?

Answer: Obama’s plan is for the most dangerous detainees – between 30 and 80 men – to be taken to the US for formal trials. This presents problems, however, as evidence against inmates such as Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, the self-confessed mastermind of the September 11 attacks, was obtained through duress. (And a clever lawyer will likely get him out of the charges = freedom/deportation = being able to try again!)

Note to self: Avoid travel to Europe!

  • Didn't most of these people ADMIT to being part of 9/11? And some of you people feel SORRY for them? They were part of a plan that killed over 3000 people and they're entitled to rights? Very sad what this country is coming to when it's own citizens will sympathize with terrorists.

  • He is bringing them to the state for trial and offering them american rights and using our tax payer money to try them. I am wondering once they are set free by some bleeding hearts will they stay in america?

  • In addition, OP, if found guilty, those former prisoners of Gitmo will be moved to military prisons within the U.S.

    Sounds like a great plan to me!

  • Here we go again, giving in to the terrorists. No wonder foreign countries like Obama, they know he is a pansy when it comes to matters like this.

  • He will probably let them stay at the White House and give them awards. Who knows. Obama is a douche bag.
