Terrorists are NOT entitled to be afforded the rights under the Geneva Convention. The Geneva Convention applies ONLY to military personnel who wear the uniform and operate under the military rules and regulations of a nation. Terrorists' activities also cannot be classified as a "crime". Their activities are acts of war and they should be prosecuted under a Military Tribunal, as they were during WW2. However, the Obama Administration, with Eric Holder as the prime banner waver, continues to insist that the terrorists should be tried in criminal court.
If you thought President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder had given up on closing Guantanamo Bay and bringing jihadists to American soil, think again. Two troubling developments on the Gitmo front should have every American on edge.

The first White House maneuver took place in October, while much of the public and the media were preoccupied with election news. On Oct. 2, Obama's cash-strapped Illinois pals announced that the federal government bought out the Thomson Correctional Center in western Illinois for $165 million. According to, a recent appraisal put the value of the facility at $220 million.
