U.S. President-Elect Obama To Shut Guantanamo Prison Camp

The Jurist legal news site sums up the story: Obama advisers planning Guantanamo prison closure: report.

"Under the plan, which would also entail the end of Guantanamo-based military commissions, the majority of detainees would either be released or brought to the US to face criminal charges. Cases that involve the use of particularly sensitive evidence would be tried in special courts designed to protect the information. The plan has already faced criticism from those who either argue that the detainees should not be brought into the country at all, or that they should all be tried in traditional criminal courts."
