Summary:

The Obama Administrationís decision to try Al Qaeda spokesman and Osama bin Laden son-in-law Sulaiman Abu Ghayth in federal court, in New York City, instead of imprisoning him at Guantanamo indefinitely, was decried by GOP lawmakers, but the Justice Department noted that federal civilian courts have handled five hundred cases involving international terrorism, including several dozen defendants captured overseas like Abu Ghayth.
