Jury convicts in only 2nd Guantanamo trial

After nearly seven years, only two trials have been completed for the hundreds of people brought to the infamous prison at Guantánamo Bay. A jury made a conviction in the second today.

As part of our transition plan for the next president, Actions for Restoring America, the ACLU urges the immediate closure of Guantánamo. The detainees should either be charged and tried under criminal law in federal criminal courts or before military courts-martial, or transfered to countries where they will not be tortured or detained without charge.
