WH Press Secretary Robert Gibbs Regrets Terrorists Will Be Held Indefinitely

Inside Gitmo: The True Story Behind the Myths of Guantanamo Bay
Perhaps there is an empty house on Gibbs street.
(Politico)White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Sunday that it was unfortunate that some terrorist suspects at Guantanamo Bay need to be held indefinitely without trial.

“Some would be tried in federal courts, as we’ve seen done in the past. Some would be tried in military commissions, likely spending the rest of their lives in a maximum security prison that nobody, including terrorists, have ever escaped from. Some, regrettably, will have to be indefinitely detained,” Gibbs said on CNN’s “State of the Union” as he described Obama’s beleaguered plan for closing Guantanamo.
