NY Times June 5 2009


The Obama administration is considering a change in the law for the military commissions at the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, that would clear the way for detainees facing the death penalty to plead guilty without a full trial.

The provision could permit military prosecutors to avoid airing the details of brutal interrogation techniques. It could also allow the five detainees who have been charged with the Sept. 11 attacks to achieve their stated goal of pleading guilty to gain what they have called martyrdom.


Seems as though details of any torture at Guantánamo Bay may never be publicy aired if this change in the law goes ahead

On his current visit to Germany Obama has discussed the possibility of where gitmo prisoners could be released to when he shuts the facility down next eyar

Can anyone spot the irony in this snippet?

upi - Germany won't take in Gitmo inmates yet

Obama promised in January he would have the infamous military prison closed down within a year.

Washington wants European nations to take in roughly 50 to 60 inmates. These prisoners -- from nations including Libya, China and Algeria -- can't return home because they could face abuse or torture there or because their governments are unwilling to take them back. Washington says the inmates are harmless.


As if they aren't being tortured or abused where they are now!!

The United States is not mulling over anything concerning our judicial system. Politicians are trying to remove the stink of our military corruption without getting the smell of it on their own hands. The solution is simple.it is our judicial system, prove their guilt or set them free. The false and hypocritical concern about what will or will not happen to them in their own country is not the concern of our legal system.
