Chairman Rogers Reconfirms Opposition to US Trials of Al Qaeda Detainees

 

“Al Qaeda leaders captured on the battlefield should not be brought to the United States to stand trial.  We should treat enemy combatants like the enemy – the U.S. court system is not the appropriate venue.  The President needs to send any captured Al Qaeda members to Guantanamo.”
