Family Members of 9/11 Victims Express Profound Disappointment in Response to Resumption of Military Commission on Guantanamo

March 8th, 2011
We are profoundly disappointed that the Obama administration has chosen to resume military commissions on Guantanamo to try individuals accused of terrorism. As families of those who were murdered on that day, we consider this a step backwards. For nearly nine years we have waited for those who committed these savage criminal acts to be brought to justice. Justice, to us, means fair and impartial proceedings according to the well tested rules of our federal court system. Military commissions are untested and have been embroiled in a series of legal challenges that make it likely that justice will not come quickly to us and our families.
