9/11 Families Denounce Resumption of Military trials on Guantanamo

NEW YORK - The
following statement may be attributed to Donna Marsh O’Connor, a
spokesperson for September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows

“Reports
that the  military war court at Guantanamo Bay is gearing up to hear
 cases of  a suspect charged with 9/11 related crimes remind us that
we remain inalterably opposed to the use of these inadequate and illegitimate
tribunals rather than civilian trials in federal courts that have resulted in
hundreds of success prosecutions.

We
 will continue to urge President Obama to remain true to our historic
commitment to justice and the rule of law, the basic values that had made our
country a great example for the rest of the world."
