Gitmo is about to get a face-lift. The Pentagon is looking into a $150 million scheme to spruce up the 11-year-old U.S. detention facility at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the not-so-happy home of 166 veterans of Osama bin Laden's war against America.
Republican outrage over the trial of Sulaiman Abu Ghaith in New York is misplaced ("CIA nabs Osama bin Laden's son-in-law; federal court date Friday," Web, Thursday). Universal resentment should arise instead from legislator disparagement of the Constitution because neither party shows reverence for the mandated requirement for the political departments to provide for national defense.
Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law is in U.S. custody and will appear Friday in federal court in New York City to face charges of conspiring to murder Americans, the FBI said Thursday.
