Obama to meet with Terror Victims at the White House Today

Friday, February 6, 2009

Today, President Obama will meet at the White House with victims and families of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and also with victims who witnessed the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole. Also on his mind is what he must do with detainees at Guantanamo Bay, as he promised to close the facility in 1 year.
The President has some explaining to do, especially to the victims of the U.S.S. Cole, as the chief Pentagon official Susan J. Crawford, who works for the Pentagon as the chief official for the military commission system, dropped charges against the leading suspect in the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole.
Abd-al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who is from Saudi Arabia, was facing the death penalty case, as he was charged with leading plan and attack of the U.S.S. Cole where 17 American sailors lost their lives in 2000. The reason for the action was because the charges against Mr. Nashiri were dismissed "without prejudice," so the prosecutors cannot file charges at a later date. There is no further reason to hold the suspect.
Mr. Nashiri is one of about 240 other terror suspects being held at Guantanamo Bay.
