    First Guantanamo Detainee to Come to NYC for Trial

    WASHINGTON -- An Obama administration official says a top Al Qaeda suspect held at Guantanamo Bay will be sent to New York City for trial.

    Ahmed Ghailani would be the first Guantanamo detainee brought to the U.S., and the first to face trial in a civilian criminal court.

    An official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to disclose the decision, tells The Associated Press that the administration has decided to bring Ghailani to trial in New York. He was indicted there for the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa -- attacks that killed 224 people, including 12 Americans.

    Ghailani, a Tanzanian, is a high-value detainee captured in Pakistan in 2004 and transferred to the U.S. detention center in Cuba two years later.

    Basically, we're back to pre-911 terrorist mentality.

    How'd that work out again?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    How is this "back to pre 9-11 mentality as opposed to being post 9-11 mentality?

    Please expain what those mentalities are??

    Seems like somebody is finally taking the bull by the horns and they are doing the right thing. Finally.

    Doing the right thing?

    from 1990-2001 we treated Terrorist like criminals.

    2001-2008 we treated them like a military threat..

    The difference? Multiple attacks on US Soil, embassies, ships... and so forth.

    Treat them like Military threat... no attacks.


    So it's smart to go back... to the way that us being attacked? Riight.

    What I like is this guy is most likely to end up getting life without parole.
    So how does that solve the problem with where to hold him?
    AHHHH...I wasn't supposed to notice that now was I Obama?

    Please provide a link to the "multiple attacks on US soil" between 2001 and 2008?

    Can you please illustrate the logical connection between giving this guy a fair trial, and other people who aren't in our prisons being more likely to fly planes into buildings?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    No, it was because you wore colored shorts before 2001 and then changed to white shorts.
    Don't get your little white shorts in a knot about it, I think New York can handle this guy with no problem.

    That was 9-11-2001, right? Who was president, again.

    It doesn't seem like you have any faith in the system. Or the military personnel, the DOJ lawyers, the U.S. Marshals. I'd like to believe they're all smart, hard working people who are really good at their jobs. I think NYC is the best place to bring terrorists who wish harm to the U.S.

    Personally, I wish our last president would had made it his mission in life to make sure Osama Bin Laden was brought to trial in the NYC on or before Sept. 11, 2002.

    None of the Bin Laden family should have ever left the country. They should have been put under house arrest in hotel rooms with a view of ground zero. Their assets should have been frozen--no special clearances or consideration. We should have stopped at nothing to capture Bin Laden.

    We have the greatest military in the word. We have smart lawyers in the DOJ. And U.S. Marshals rule. Bring 'em to NYC!! It's about time.

    And how exactly is this a threat again? If we don't have evidence then why are we holding him? If we do have evidence then why are you worried? Do you honestly think that we aren't able to hold him in a prison on US soil without them escaping? Your lack of faith in the rule of law is shocking.
    Affiant further sayeth not.

    So are you seriously asserting that treating terrorists like criminals is what led to 9/11 happening?
