WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is brushing off security
concerns over the impending trial of the first Guantanamo detainee
brought to America since President Barack Obama ordered the camp
Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says the Manhattan federal court
handling the Ahmed Ghailani (guh-LAHN'-ee) case successfully dealt
with those charged in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other
But critics wonder if it's up to multiple prosecutions of
inmates arriving from Guantanamo. And they ask what happens if a
suspect's acquitted? Will he just be set free in New York?
Gibbs dismisses that question as "hypothetical" and says it'll
be dealt with if it ever comes to pass.
