Washington (CNN) -- President Barack Obama said Monday that the United States will resume using military commissions to prosecute alleged terrorists held at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention facility.
In the announcement, the president said his administration remains committed to closing the controversial detention facility but will rescind its previous suspension on bringing new charges before military commissions. The commissions are military proceedings rather than trials in civilian courts.
JG: the guy is consummate liar. He has no intension of closing the Guantanamo Gulag! He confirms one more time that there is no difference between him and George W. Bush.
