House bars moving Gitmo detainees to US soil

The House of Representatives on Wednesday approved legislation to prohibit moving terrorism suspects from the military prison at Guantanamo Bay to U.S. soil, a blow to President Barack Obama's efforts to prosecute them in criminal courts.

The provision was tucked in must-pass legislation that would fund the U.S. government's operations through the end of the 2011 fiscal year, September 30, 2011. That legislation now goes to the Senate for approval.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very simple why the House doesn't want a normal, constitutional trial for these prisoners of war: they are terrified that Americans will wake up to the reality that many of these people were coerced into confession under torture, and what physical and psychological scars will surface as evidence to that fact.
