Yes, what a great idea---close Guantanamo by bringing Guantanamo to the mainland.... the concern that brought me to represent men at Guantanamo and stand up for our Constitution is coming closer to reality:

President Barack Obama reiterated in January his desire to close the notorious Guantanamo prison by the end of this year. Even among those who agree it should close, a surprising number of lawmakers and policy analysts seem to believe that may require creating a new indefinite detention scheme for suspected terrorists here in the United States.
Supporters of these proposals highlight the allegedly intractable problem of some 45 detainees at Guantanamo, and potentially more, whom the Obama administration has insisted since 2009 cannot be convicted on criminal charges, yet are nonetheless too dangerous to release.

It is only a hop skip and a jump before anyone of us could be detained without charge -because we are suspected to be a "terrorist".... more here.
