Guantanamo Bay Re Do

Remember when President Obama wanted to shut down Guantanamo Bay? Remember when President Obama wanted to use a criminal law system for Guantanamo Bay detainees? The next question is why did President Obama forget to talk about Guantanamo Bay since those things did not happen? We will give the President credit for not making a mistake that he and his people must have seen. The word is breaking that the Obama administration will soon increase the use of military trials for prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The next piece has an attachment so that there is a parole-type system to review the cases of prisoners who are not expected to get such trials. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is expected to soon lift a 2-year-old order that blocked any new cases from being started against terrorism suspects at Guantanamo. President Barack Obama is expected to sign an executive order setting up the parole-type system. If you remember the ban on new cases was put in place just after Obama’s 2009 inauguration because he planned to close the prison. Everything has come full circle on this issue and for all those people that cheered at the 2009 inauguration we are hopeful that seeing that President Bush was right and he should have just stayed the course.
