This book explores the legal and trial issues arising from the United States' war on terrorism. The detention of alleged enemy combatants at the U.S. Naval Station in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and the potential transfer of such individuals away from the Guantanamo detention facility, have been the focus of significant legislative activity during the 111th Congress. Also discussed, herein, is Attorney General Holder's decision to try certain detainees in federal criminal court, including those accused of conspiring to commit the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and to try other detainees by military commission. Attention has focused on the procedural differences between trials in federal court and those conducted under the Military Commissions Act.
