Sunday Morning Guantanamo News Roundup

By possum

More news from Guantanamo as the discussions continue about the future of the prisoners.  Some will be released.  Some will be subject to trial.  But of the others who knows?

The recent decision by President Obama to continue the military commissions raised the ire of various groups.

Civil liberties groups have reacted angrily to US President Barack Obama's decision to revive military trials for some Guantanamo Bay detainees.
A campaign promise to end the trials is being put to the test.  Instead the detainees are promised new legal protections to bring the system more in line with American justice.
Lakhdar Boumediene, a 43-year-old Algerian native, was released to France this week.
Boumediene has relatives in France, which led the government to accept him as a gesture to the Obama administration.

Kansas Senator Sam Brownback says Guantanamo should remain open.

Moving them at all is a mistake, Brownback said. The Guantanamo site is well run, prisoners are treated well and the government has spent millions of dollars there to prepare for possible military trials
Brownback continued adding
I don't know of another facility anywhere in the United States ... that is comparable.
He may win the understatement of the year award for that comment.

President Obama is taken to task by the New York Times for having second thoughts about what course to take these days.

Perhaps it is the knowledge that lives rest on his choices, or the general sense that settles over most presidents that the world is a more complex place from the vantage point of the Oval Office than it appears from the campaign trail.
