    Good for illinois. This is not rocket science we can keep prisoners in their cells. To all the towns who have terrophobia you lose.

    This is a military issue not a civilian issue these are prisoners of war not Bonny and Clyde these people carry top secret information that can be passed on to the enemy this whole idea of a civilian court is nothing more then dangerous politics from the Democratic party.

    Why are so many people tied in knots about Obama bowing to the Emperor of Japan? Bowing is correct court etiquette. Do Presidents defy the Vatican rules of behaviour when they visit the Pope?

    Standing up straight instead of bowing makes Americans who insist on it look boorish frankly, like hillbillies who don't know any better.

    What better place to have this trial, but the place where it began. The families and love ones will be able to attend if they want to.
    This crime occured in civilian venue not military therefore NY civilian court is the ideal place for it to take place.

    GOP is very vocal about opposing Obama's handling of 911 detainees, fixing healthcare, and wall street reforms. Funny, all these things existed on their watch and they did NOTHING.

    Gitmo Prisoners

    Those prisoners we don't need or want. Refurbish and Reopen Alcatraz. That would be the best place, it's off shore nobody ever escaped. Their terrorist do t.hey deserve anymore. Atlease they would be off the shore of America.

    Has anyone else noticed that this prison in Thompson Illinois is near Mt. Carroll Illinois which has a training facility for Blackwater USA. A training facility for private security forces.??

    Ok, so they have valid information obtained from Mohummad that will practically guarantee his being found guilty. My question is, were the other 4 detained with the use of tainted information? If so, we may only get 1 out of 5, the rest may walk!
