President Obama has not given up the idea of trying terrorist suspects now housed at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in United States courts. While signing a bill designed to make it easier to transfer Gitmo detainees to other countries, Obama again protested congressional restrictions on bringing some prisoners to the United States. Obama wrote in a signing statement attached Thursday to a new defense authorization bill, "The executive branch must have the authority to determine when and where to prosecute Guantanamo detainees, based on the facts and circumstances of each case and our national security interests," . Congressional Republicans, other lawmakers, and local officials have objected to the idea of terrorism trials in the United States, citing security concerns and possible threats from terrorist groups.
