Obama’s Gitmo “plan” is soaring rhetoric, riling his base by using a hodge podge of mistruths
In contrast to all of the above heretofore mentioned, the vast majority… if not all… of the Gitmo detainees have never set foot on US soil. They were captured overseas and on a war battlefield, not in the US under law enforcement charges. Evidence is not as forthcoming, and what may be admissible is certainly under question. In fact, the access of Gitmo detainees to the US court system is only made possible by the SCOTUS…. and that decision has been nothing short of mind boggling in it’s far reaching ramifications for future justice.
