Brennan Linsley Associated Press File The military-run prison at Guantanamo Bay played host to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday

Jeff Sessions, as well as his deputy, Rod Rosenstein go to the camp located on the island of Cuba to familiarize themselves with the operations in this prison who has not been re-detained for almost a decade. He said it was important for Justice Department officials "to have an up-to-date understanding of current operations" there.

'This morning, I watched President Obama talking about Gitmo, right, Guantanamo Bay, which by the way, which by the way, we are keeping open, ' Trump said at a campaign rally.

During a March 2017 interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, the Attorney General was asked about the closure of Guantanamo, saying, "I have not favored that". "Eventually this will be decided by the military rather than the Justice Department, but I see no legal problem whatsoever with doing that".

"Recent attacks in Europe and elsewhere confirm that the threat to our nation is immediate and real, and it remains essential that we use every lawful tool available to prevent as many attacks as possible".

Tutor Perini Corporation (TPC) Upgraded to "Hold" at BidaskClub
AQR Capital Management LLC increased its position in shares of Tutor Perini Corporation by 33.9% in the fourth quarter. Zacks Investment Research cut Tutor Perini Corporation from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a report on Thursday.

The prison at the Guantanamo Bay military base opened in 2002 to hold and interrogate terrorism suspects after the September 11, 2001, attacks against the United States. The detainees will be given a basic physical exam by a doctor, to include a chest x-ray and blood samples drawn to assess their health, the military said. Congress blocked President Barack Obama's effort to close it, but Obama gradually transferred prisoners, bringing the population down to 41 today. Two major death-penalty cases - one over the 2000 bombing of the naval destroyer Cole, and one against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other detainees accused of playing a role in the September 11 attacks - have languished in pretrial hearings for years.

Obama's Justice Department argued that US civilian courts were the best place to try terrorism suspects and cited convictions in NY and other cities as proof.

Sessions and other Republicans have long expressed concern that civilian courts afford legal protections to which suspected terrorists are not entitled.

The other military commission death penalty case, of the alleged mastermind of the deadly October 2000 bombing attack on the USS Cole in Yemen, has been similarly bogged down for years in pretrial litigation.
