Could Trump send the NY terror suspect to Guantanamo?

Could Trump send the NY terror suspect to Guantanamo?

He was wheeled into a federal court in a wheelchair, handcuffed and his feet shackled. But just a few hours later, the government filed federal terrorism charges against suspect Sayfullo Saipov, signaling an intent to prosecute him within the U.S.

The president on Wednesday said he would "certainly consider" sending the suspect in the truck attack that left eight people dead in lower Manhattan to Guantanamo Bay.

In fact, one of the terrorists who attempted back in 2013, the Boston Marathon bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was sentenced to death through the federal system of Justice as a terrorist, since the state of MA does not have the standard death penalty either.

At least a dozen others were injured in the truck attack in Tribeca.

"NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room".

Federal prosecutors say Saipov was "consumed by hate and a twisted ideology". The president agreed that the USA base in Cuba would be an option for Saipov, an immigrant from Uzbekistan who authorities say was inspired by the Islamic State.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation said it had located another Uzbek man, Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, 32, wanted for questioning as a person of interest in the attack. Trump tweeted. "There is also something appropriate about keeping him in the home of the terrible crime he committed".

In the wake of a deadly terrorist attack in NY earlier this week, Trump on Wednesday suggested he'd be open to holding the suspect, a 29-year-old Uzbek national who has lived in the United States since 2010, as an enemy combatant at the Cuba facility nicknamed Gitmo.

The US president has shared his views on the possible punishment for the NY attack perpetrator.

Mourinho confident Man Utd attitude problems a one-off
They are level on points with Saturday's opponents Spurs, who have won four in a row in the league. Today, every ball looked like the last ball of their careers".


"Send him to Gitmo - I would certainly consider that, yes", Trump said in response to questions from reporters.

The diversity program, signed into law in 1990 by Republican President George H.W. Bush, was created to provide more permanent resident visas to people from countries with low United States immigration rates.

The president took to Twitter on Wednesday, saying Saipov should get the death penalty.

Attorney Ron Kuby, who represented a blind Egyptian sheik sentenced to life in prison after a Manhattan terrorism trial, said Trump's tweets, if anything, could work against his desire to see the death penalty.

Prosecutors said Saipov had 90 videos and 3800 photos on one of his two mobile phones, many of them Islamic State-related pieces of propaganda, including images of prisoners being beheaded, shot or run over by a tank.

The lawyers for Bowe Bergdahl, who deserted his base in Afghanistan in 2009, argued unsuccessfully that candidate-Trump's comment that he was a "traitor" would taint any trial.

Vladeck noted that American criminal courts, which have secured hundreds of terrorism-related convictions since September 11, have been more efficient than the military tribunal process at Guantanamo Bay. A 31-year-old Belgian mother was also among the dead and 12 other people were wounded in the worst attack in NY since the September 11, 2001 Al-Qaeda hijackings.
