But then again - talking about General Incompetence.
"I would certainly consider" sending the NYC terror suspect to Guantanamo Bay- The Cheeto
“If the President sends this man to Guantanamo then the President is an idiot,” - Wells Dixon
Looks like dRump does not understand or is willing to abide by The Authorization for Use of Military Force allows the President to use force against those who “planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons.”
Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) characterized the attack as an act of war being waged by Islamic extremists and called on Saipov to be labeled as an enemy combatant.
How McCain and Graham could tie this criminal act to 911 is beyond me.
Can Trump send American citizens to Guantanamo Bay?
Professor Matthew Waxman of Columbia Law School, who served in the Department of Defense overseeing detainee policies under the Bush administration, explained that “the government to date has been relying on perhaps a plausible, but very stretched, interpretation of the AUMF to include ISIS (for purposes of drone strikes),” and the concept of further relying on the AUMF to detain ISIS-supporters not captured on the battlefield, but arrested in the US, would be a “big stretch.”
