According to the Associated Press:
"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."
It looks like Obama is using his Commander in Chief authority to play humanitarian for terrorists. These 21 people who are currently on trial have a vendetta against the USA and want us DEAD!!! ...and Obama wants to give these assholes amnesty?
