The House of Representatives voted majority for Guantanamo prisoners to face trial in US courts, This issue was a top agenda for the Obama administration because of world opinion and civil rights advocates But many lawmakers including Democrats have objected to house terrorist on US soil and are worried that would bring additional attacks. The House passed a compromise bill that that would allow prisoners to come to US soil but only if they were going to face trial in a US court.

The Administration has to provide a risk assessment and could face further restrictions as Senator Lindsey Graham hopes to prevent prisoners from being released on US soil, Although this is not a done deal and prisoners could be released because of no wrong doing to another country or others could stand trial in front of a Military Tribunal this is not a popular subject in this country.

September 11 shocked the world and landed us into two wars. Why is this President willing to put his Presidency and his legacy on the line for people who are willing to kill us? The American tax payer should not have to shoulder the burden of having to pay for any of this, If any Congressman or Senator vote in favor of this you pay for it and suffer the consequences at reelection.

This has never been a good subject for me as I wrote about it earlier this year Rage Over Gitmo Detainee and has become a popular article so allot of people feel the same way as I do.
