A year ago I wrote this post where I suggested that closing Club Gitmo would not be achieved in the time frame suggested by Barack Obama and now I have been vindicated as the deadline passes without any resolution to the disposition of this group of dangerous men.
Some 35 prisoners have been recommended for prosecution through trials or military commissions.
The news came as the deadline US President Barack Obama had set himself for closing the prison camp passed.
The task force, led by the US justice department, recommended that while 35 people could be prosecuted, 110 could be released either now or at a later date, unnamed officials said.
The other nearly 50 detainees are considered too dangerous to release, but cannot be tried because the evidence against them is too flimsy or was extracted from them by coercion, so would not hold up in court.
