Trump thinks twice on sending NY attacker to Guantanamo

We already do extensive vetting

Mr Trump said on Wednesday that he would consider sending Saipov to Guantanamo Bay. "And at the end, they'll be - who knows what happens", the president said.

Saipov was wounded by a shot from the police after driving over a crowd of people with a vehicle and is now under surveillance in a NY hospital. He said the yet-to-be-assigned judge will question prospective jurors to ensure they can be fair despite anything they might have heard or read.

On Thursday morning, Trump reversed course and said it's best to put the alleged attacker through the USA judicial system - using some of the same arguments that former President Barack Obama advanced for shutting down Guantanamo.

"The terrorist attack in NY is the latest brutal, horrific example of the war that radical Islamist extremists are waging against our nation and our way of life", McCain said in a statement Wednesday.

Graham told reporters that the suspect would not need to be held at Guantánamo - although he could be - and that it was possible that Saipov could later be reclassified as a civilian.

Saipov could also offer information to authorities helpful beyond his case, because a suspected terrorist in custody also lets investigators delve more deeply into "the arc of their radicalization", Miller said.

He noted over 500 defendants have been convicted of terrorism-related crimes since the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Saipov allegedly asked authorities to hang an Islamic State group flag in his hospital room, according to court documents, which Trump referenced in a tweet, concluding with "SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!" in all capital letters.

But this morning he tweeted again, stating that it may be more hard to send him to the Guantanamo as "statistically that process takes much longer than going through the Federal system". Two weeks ago, a jury took four hours to convict a man in a September 2016 bombing in New York City that wounded 30 people.

Trump has already seized on the deadly attack, which left eight dead and 12 injured, to call for tighter immigration laws in the United States.

Attorney Ron Kuby, who represented a blind Egyptian sheik sentenced to life in prison after a Manhattan terrorism trial, said Trump's tweets, if anything, could work against his desire to see the death penalty.

He has also supported the idea of sending the suspect to Guantanamo Bay terrorist detention centre in Cuba.
