Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) released a statement Tuesday voicing outrage that captured al Qaeda leader Abu Anas al-Libi will be receiving a trial in federal court in New York.
Three additional terrorists once held at the Guantanamo Bay prison were confirmed as having returned to terrorism after their release, and two others joined the ranks of those suspected of rejoining jihad against the West, according to a U.S. intelligence report made public last week.
The United States on Thursday said it had transferred two men from the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the government of Algeria as part of its ongoing effort to close the controversial prison.
Yet another alleged 9/11 terrorist requested permission on Tuesday to leave a Guantanamo Bay courtroom after consuming a meal that he claims made him sick.
Defense lawyers for the alleged architects of the 9/11 terror attacks are fighting to allow their clients to view highly classified government documents, a move that has significantly delayed the terror trials and raised questions about the detainees’ legal rights.
The U.S. government denied claims that several of the most dangerous Guantanamo Bay inmates are being held in inhumane conditions.
Prematurely closing the controversial detention facility at Guantanamo Bay would release the most dangerous terrorists currently held by the United States and pose a grave national security threat, according to one representative who recently visited the facility.
