Military jurors fly to Guantanamo Bay to hear 1st war-crimes trial under Obama

Didn't Obama promise to close Gitmo 2 years ago?

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) — U.S. military officers were flying in Sunday to serve as jurors in war-crimes proceedings as the Guantanamo tribunal system geared up for one of its busiest weeks under President Barack Obama.

The Pentagon is holding military commission sessions this week for two detainees: a young Canadian going on trial for the slaying of a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan and an aide to Osama bin Laden who is to be sentenced after pleading guilty in a deal with prosecutors.
