ACLU Statement on Obama's Guantánamo Closure Plan

WASHINGTON - The White House released a plan today to close the prison at Guantánamo.

Anthony D. Romero, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, had this reaction:

“President Obama deserves high praise for trying to make good on his promise to close Guantánamo and erase the stain on America’s moral standing at home and abroad. The president is also right on the money when he says that the best venue for prosecuting present and future terrorism cases is our tried and tested federal courts.
