Trump to keep Gitmo open - executive order

"In the past, we have foolishly released hundreds of risky terrorists only to meet them again on the battlefield", he added, giving the Islamic State group's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as an example. They are unlawful enemy combatants.

The prison, which was opened by President George W. Bush to hold suspected militants captured overseas after the September 11, 2001, attacks, came to symbolize harsh detention practices that opened the United States to accusations of torture.

United States President Donald Trump has dwelled on Afghanistan, in his first official State of the Union speech, saying that the USA military in the war-torn South Asian nation has "new rules of engagement".

Obama signed an order on his first full day in office in 2009 ordering efforts to shutter Guantanamo within a year, but his plan was thwarted by mostly Republican opposition in Congress.

"Trump is making a big mistake by doubling down on the national security and human rights disaster that is Guantanamo", ACLU National Security Project Director Hina Shamsi said in a statement circulated to reporters late Tuesday night.

Justice Department Moves to Dismiss Corruption Case Against Menendez
After the judge's ruling last week, Menendez flashed what has become an increasingly confident and defiant side about the case. Earlier this month, the Department of Justice said it wanted to retry Menendez (D-N.J.) on political corruption charges.

Some were cleared for release under Obama, but have been stranded at Guantanamo under the Trump administration. It reportedly holds 41 detainees.

European allies, Muslim leaders and other critics have been vehemently opposed to how detainees have been held at Guantanamo for decades without charge.

Since becoming president, Trump has toyed with the idea of sending Americans to Guantanamo, though federal judges would likely bar any such attempt.

This Prison was built under President George W. Bush on the United States naval base on the eastern tip of Cuba, in the months following the US-led invasion of Afghanistan after the September 11, 2001 attacks. "Keeping Guantanamo open is politically expedient but exceedingly stupid no matter how you look at it".

Trump also asked Congress to make sure that in the fight against the Islamic State group and al-Qaeda, the United States has necessary power to detain terror suspects "wherever we chase them down, wherever we find them". Obama transferred 197 detainees out, leaving 41, including five cleared for release.
