The Legal Implications of Closing Guantanamo Bay
We are now nearly five months into the year that President Obama has given to close the Guantanamo Bay facility. There has been a lot of political back and forth about whether or not this is a good idea, and what to do with the prisoners. If you are interested, the Council on Foreign Relations has a nice page devoted to legal issues surrounding the closing of Guantanamo, including the legal status of prisoners. They also cite many other helpful sources, like this Congressional Research Service report.
Thanks to the Moritz Legal Information Blog for throwing this our way.
