    Gitmo (finally) being prepped to receive new prisoners! For nearly three years, there have been reports and rumors of millions of dollars being spent at Guantanamo Bay Naval Station (aka "Gitmo") to receive new U.S. prisoners -- tried in military courts under the UCMJ. During that time, the current Detention Area (at lower right [east], above) has been under regular "OHI" (OverHead Imagery) surveilllance. Despite debunked false propaganda, the last visible Detention Area change was in 2011 -- when an exercise yard was added. But, recently, surveillance has detected construction activity at the far left [west] end of the...

    The Chinese coronavirus pandemic has once again delayed the long-awaited death penalty trial of the self-professed 9/11 mastermind and his four co-conspirators held at the U.S. military prison in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, the judge handling the cases revealed recently. Justice remains elusive nearly two decades after the jihadis executed the attack that left about 3,000 people dead and over 6,000 injured, marking the deadliest assault on U.S. soil. U.S. officials charged the late Osama bin Laden’s close ally Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) alongside his nephew, Ammar al-Baluchi, accused hijacking trainer Walid bin Attash, facilitator Ramzi bin al-Shibh, and al-Qaeda money...

    China refuses to take back thousands of Chinese citizens stranded in the U.S. illegally, many of whom have committed violent crimes, the South China Morning Post reported on Friday. As many as tens of thousands of Chinese nationals are currently stuck in the U.S. because China refuses to repatriate them. In 2015, U.S. immigration authorities estimated that 38,000 Chinese citizens were awaiting deportation, 900 people among them classified as violent offenders. While many of the people awaiting deportation to China have committed serious crimes, others are guilty of lesser infractions, such as overstaying their visas or breaking traffic laws, according...

    Martin Gugino, 75, was shoved while approaching riot police in Buffalo causing him to stumble backwards and hit his head, resulting in a melt-down of intense fury on social media. Far from being an innocent old man as being portrayed by some, it turns out that Gugino is a longtime hard left agitator. At the time of this writing, it appears that Guginos Facebook and Twitter accounts have been deleted. The accounts, which were researched by RAIR Foundation USA, revealed a seasoned leftist activist who had a self-described “obsession” with Cuba. Gugino has ties to radical socialist Catholic Worker Movement,...

    Al-Qahtani reportedly was upset he faced murder and war crimes charges. SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - The alleged “20th hijacker” in the Sept. 11 attacks tried to kill himself at Guantanamo last month, his lawyer disclosed Tuesday, saying the Saudi prisoner was distraught over a possible death sentence for charges later dropped by the Pentagon. Mohammed al-Qahtani cut himself at least three times and had to be hospitalized at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba, attorney Gitanjali Gutierrez said. Al-Qahtani made the suicide attempt after learning military prosecutors filed capital charges against him and five other Guantanamo prisoners for their...

    Federal prosecutors have declined to charge former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, closing an investigation into whether he lied to federal officials about his involvement in a news media disclosure, McCabe’s legal team said Friday. The decision resolves a criminal investigation that spanned more than a year and began with a referral from the Justice Department’s inspector general, which said McCabe repeatedly lied about having authorized a subordinate to share information with a newspaper reporter for a 2016 article about an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation. McCabe’s lawyers said in a statement they were told in a phone call...

    NAVAL STATION GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba -- This is not your typical deployment location in the war on terror. Troops here get to scuba dive in their off time and have an assortment of restaurants and bars to unwind in at the end of long days spent guarding enemy combatants. The troops who manage the detention facility here belong to Joint Task Force Guantanamo. They're deployed for varying tour lengths from all services, both active and reserve components. "They come here on deployment, and they're actually coming to a place that is not as bad as (many) deployments," said Navy Capt....

    Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, has expressed willingness to aid a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia by victims of the attack if the federal government does not seek the death penalty against him, according to The Wall Street Journal. Mohammed’s offer was first made public in a filing Friday as part of the federal lawsuit, which seeks to hold the Saudi government responsible for assisting in the attacks, a charge the Saudis have denied. Lawyers for the plaintiffs reportedly reached out to three of five Guantanamo Bay prisoners accused of conspiring in the...

    Not just a lie—a scurrilous slander. On her MSNBC show today, Joy Reid claimed that "during the Bush era, we were . . . starving people in Guantanamo."The truth is precisely the opposite. During the Bush era, Guantanamo officials took forceful measures to prevent people from starving. A number of prisoners had gone on hunger strikes to protest prison conditions. Among their complaints: "the prison authorities broadcast the call to prayers only four times daily, rather than the required five for religious obligations and . . . many of the detainees resented when women GIs broadcast the call to prayer."...

    Hillary Clinton took some time out amid her latest speaking tour to get in another shot at President Trump. The tour, dubbed “An Evening with the Clintons,” rolled through DC’s DAR Constitution Hall on Saturday night. But this time, the event featured a video with comedian Jordan Klepper in which Clinton reads portions of the Mueller report. The video, shot for Comedy Central’s “Klepper,” shows Hillary and Bill discussing different crowdfunding options they could take part in, one of which is an audiobook of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report read by Secretary Clinton. “Gosh, I would definitely contribute to that,”...
