    Asking for the rule of law in American? How dare the President do such an awful thing.

    The USA has some wonderful Max security prisons, some of which have room in them, and unlike too many of our elected officials, many Americans do not believe terrorists are any more likely to attack USA soil than they are already. Guantanamo makes us look bad to the world and failing to close its prison facilities down is just one more promise Mr. Obama failed to keep. It also adds to his failure to be "the most transparent administration in history’.
    German and Italian POWS were kept in the USA in WW1 and WW2. The war on terrorism is a different kind of war, but the honor and credibility of the USA is tarnished and military resources wasted under this current policy.
    I would be proud if the Gov of Va, my state of residency for most of my life, would extend an invitation to the President to house some of these people in one of Va.’s max security prisons.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    House the terrorists in minimum security prisons where Americans can get at them and kill them.

    So, it is alright for them to kill us, but it is not alright for us to return the favor?

    I’ll mark Mr. Holbert down in favor of secret trials.

    Next up, Mr. Holbert decides the legality of secret torture and secret drone missile strikes.

    If the Costitution doesn’t apply to everyone, it applies to no one.

    Mechanic, I agree with the entirety of your comment except the first sentence. The difference between an excuse and a reason is the degree to which responsibility is given.
    ^
    The republicans and a few democrats who blocked the move from GB to the USA gives Mr. Obama an excellent excuse, but does not address his responsibility. The lack of visible effort to force this move under the Constitution lacks reason nor is it excusable. Under the rules of war, even a war like this; and under US law, GB is unconstitutional and the ability of the legislature to block the move has had more than enough time to reach the SCOTUS if Mr. Obama did not seem to appreciate the tool GB has become in the war on terror – a statement circumstancially supported by his continued support of the Patriot Act, a law against which Senator Obama spoke strongly.
    ^
    That is what warrants the description of failure. Had the President pushed this until SCOTUS gave Congress power to block, I would not have labeled this a failure because we would have seen Mr. Obama’s visible effort.
    ^
    As far as Virginia goes… The Gov is GOP with presidential aspirations and the GOP is very harsh to any Republican who does not conform to party policy, Chris Christie, for instance.
    Our disagreement is very slight. Thank you for the a reply based on thought than partisanship.
    Sincerely,
    C.

    True but law is limited, are you saying we should force our laws on these people around the world. This is a war you prosecute a war with violence. Sorry.
