US attorney general confident in terror prosecutions

November 2, 2017

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is expressing confidence in the ability of the justice system to prosecute people facing terrorism charges.

He also says the United States won't hesitate to use Guantanamo Bay when warranted.

Sessions spoke Thursday at a federal prosecutor's office near the scene of the Manhattan bike path attack that left eight people dead.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday he would consider sending Sayfullo Saipov (sy-foo-LOH' sah-YEE'-pawf) to Guantanamo Bay. But that avenue appeared closed after prosecutors brought terrorism charges against the Uzbek immigrant.

The Republican president says he'd love to send the suspect to Guantanamo Bay. But he tweets that the judicial process at the Cuban detention center takes longer than the federal court system.

Trump tweeted late Wednesday that suspect "SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!"
