Tonight, we've learned that one of the 240 Gitmo detainees is coming to New York to face trial. Ahmed Ghailani is accused of taking part in the 1998 al Qaeda plot to bomb two American embassies in Africa that killed more than 200 people.
He was finally captured five years ago in Pakistan and was transported to Guantanamo in 2006.
President Obama will address the future of the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, tomorrow morning in a speech at Georgetown University.
Earlier today, Pres. Obama was dealt a blow when the U.S. Senate approved a measure prevent detainees at Guantanamo Bay from being transferred to the United States for now. The measure passed with overwhelming bipartisan support in a 90-6 vote. Then tonight, just hours after that vote, we learn of plans to bring this one detainee to the U.S. to face trial. What does this all mean? We'll talk it over with our legal and political experts.
Do you agree Ghailani should face trial here in the U.S.? And, did the Senate make the right call? Should all Gitmo detainees stay off U.S. soil?
We'll have this and more tonight on AC360° starting at 10pm ET.
See you then!
