9-11 Killers Spared!… Obama Halts Gitmo War Crimes Tribunals

Thank goodness… The 9-11 killers are spared.

9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed can sleep soundly tonight.
He has a new friend in the White House.

The new POTUS halted all Gitmo tribunals.
Reuters reported:

Hours after taking office on Tuesday, U.S. President Barack Obama ordered military prosecutors in the Guantanamo war crimes tribunals to ask for a 120-day halt in all pending cases.

Military judges were expected to rule on the request on Wednesday at the U.S. naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, an official involved in the trials said.

The request would halt proceedings in 21 pending cases, including the death penalty case against five Guantanamo prisoners accused of plotting the September 11 hijacked plane attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.

A near majority of Americans believe Gitmo should remain open.
