Coalition Letter to the House on Prosecuting Terrorism Defendants in Federal Courts (February 2010)

Oppose Any Motion to Recommit on the Intelligence Authorization Act (HR 2701) That Would Bar Prosecution of Some Terrorism Defendants in Federal Criminal Courts ... The possible motion to recommit would needlessly tie the President’s hands in resolving the problem of Guantánamo and disposing of cases in ways that comport with human rights principles and the rule of law. It would restrict the Obama administration’s ability to employ one of the most valuable counterterrorism tools available—criminal prosecutions in regular federal courts.
