Dear Editor:

At a recent press conference, President Obama renewed his 2009 pledge to close the Gitmo military prison in Cuba. His executive order to do that was blocked by the GOP House.

I agree with all the reasons Obama explained to the reporters. These alleged terrorists, serving years in Gitmo, deserve to have a trial — not in a military court but in a federal court. We all agree justice should be served. If found guilty, they should serve their time, like many other guilty terrorists are doing, in a federal prison.
