Charges dropped vs. suspect in 2000 USS Cole blast
WASHINGTON The Pentagon's senior judge overseeing terror trials at Guantanamo Bay dropped charges Thursday against an al-Qaida suspect in the 2000 USS Cole bombing, upholding President Barack Obama's order to freeze military tribunals there. The charges against suspected al-Qaida bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri marked the last active Guantanamo war crimes case.

The legal move by Susan J. Crawford, the top legal authority for military trials at Guantanamo, brings all cases into compliance with Obama's Jan. 22 executive order to halt terrorist court proceedings at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba.

(Note the date of Feb. 2009 at the top, this has surged back up recently, so I thought it should be reposted. Note: Only "surged back up" on Foxnews.)

EDIT: It seems like the Government is happier with attacking Americans on a political and legal level more than defending us.
