TEAM OBAMA FOLDS: Gitmo Terror Trials to Resume
Well, that was two years we’ll never have back.
Obama halted Guantanamo war crimes trials the day he took office.
Today, the Obama Administration announced that terror trials will resume at Gitmo.
FOX News reported:
President Obama announced Monday that military trials will resume for detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp, saying the tribunals are an “important tool in combating international terrorists.”
The president, who issued an executive order outlining the changes Monday afternoon, said Defense Secretary Robert Gates will rescind his January 2009 ban against bringing new charges against terror suspects in the military commissions.
Obama said in a statement that the decision was part of a plan to “broaden our ability to bring terrorists to justice.”
Obama vowed when he took office to close the detention facility at Guantanamo.
He’s so smart.
