President Obama, who I voted for (not that it matters), has stated that he plans to close Guantanamo Bay by next year. So far, there are several places in the US listed for the detainees to be transferred to. What are your thoughts about having suspected terrorists on US soil?
It doesn't bother me at all that they will be transferred to U.S. soil. In fact I am glad about it. Which now means they are subject to and entitled to all of the laws of the United States government including being issued their civil rights by the government. I would rather they have the right, each individual, to be able to have their day in court and ability to defend what they have been accused of. The fact is that our government has to prove that they are guilty - they do not have to prove their innocence. Although realistically at this point they do. I would not want to be held without due process and do not want to continue this disastrous policy of foreign "suspects" to be held indefinitely. All they are is "suspects" until proven they are indeed terrorists. There is a big difference. Each person deserves their right to be heard and present their information as they see fit.
