Skip to comments.Obama Planning U.S. Trials for Guantanamo Detainees (bringing them to the US!)

WASHINGTON -- President-elect Barack Obama's advisers are quietly crafting a proposal to ship dozens, if not hundreds, of imprisoned terrorism suspects to the United States to face criminal trials, a plan that would make good on his promise to close the Guantanamo Bay prison but could require creation of a controversial new system of justice.
During his campaign, Obama described Guantanamo as a "sad chapter in American history" and has said generally that the U.S. legal system is equipped to handle the detainees. But he has offered few details on what he planned to do once the facility is closed.
Under plans being put together in Obama's camp, some detainees would be released and many others would be prosecuted in U.S. criminal courts.
Laurence Tribe, a Harvard law professor and Obama legal adviser, said discussions about plans for Guantanamo had been "theoretical" before the election but would quickly become very focused because closing the prison is a top priority. Bringing the detainees to the United States will be controversial, he said, but could be accomplished.

Did we MIRANDIZE them on the battlefield? The world wonders /s
There is no such thing as enemies anymore ...we are all one people....
They are NOT Prisoners of War. They are Terrorists. President Bush should have them ALL SHOT before Obama takes over.
Really, really sick.
Obama is going to bring about our destruction.
Is there anything that our Representatives can do to save our Republic, or do we have to put up with Obama's sh!t until Congressional elections in 2010?
I’m sure they’ll feel right at home in Chicago.
“There is no such thing as enemies anymore ...”
...unless you are conservative Republican, in which case your days are numbered.
What have we done?
He'll probably give those positions in his Civilian Security Force.
Arrggh, he is bringing them to the US, not necessarily to Chicago. I messed up when posting the story... sorry!
I couldn’t find anything in the article about Chicago.
Do you have a link for the “taking them to Chicago” you posted in the title?
Don’t say “we”...I didn’t vote for him.
Obama is seeking cabinet members from this bunch.
While he is still CinC we need President Bush to announce a “Terrorist Care Program” in which all of the Gitmo prisoners are assigned to individual Democrat clowns for “safekeeping” — be sure that all of the leading Democrats get one of their own to look after.
Ok, just press abuse and ask the Mod to correct your title.
The more I hear, the more terrifying an Obama presidency sounds.
I messed up when posting the article... sorry. I’ll ask the Admin Moderator to change the title.
Admin, can you change the last word in the title from “Chicago” to “the US”? Thanks.
Cool, man ! Get them all legal counsel and hold bail hearings. Release them on their own recognizance. They were never given their Miranda rights on the battlefield. Release them immediately. Let them all reside in the U.S. Preferably in Chicago where they can visit with William Ayers and plot nasty revenge.
If you are an American, then you are a part of the "we".
If God judges this nation, the rain will fall on the just and the unjust.
Americans were outnumbered by a bunch of d@mn communists, terrorists, Jonestown people and other dangerous fools.
BLOAT and pray is all that I have to say.
