jihad in the courtroom..." new york city firefighter robert reeg says mr obama failed to deliver on his promise of swift and certain justice. instead, the 9/11 families have been quote emotionally waterboarded" by the delays. one defense attorney recently said a trial may not happen until 2020. long says: "the american public isn't even aware that it's not occurring. and it's really it's a personal struggle to really maintain a balance of moving on with your life at the same time fighting for what's right for what's happened in the past." at the year end news conference, mr obama once again promised to close the detention camps, and seemed dismissive of the guantanamo legal process. president obama says: "some of those folks are going through the military commission process. but there's going to be a challenge there." president obama has not laid out a detailed plan for the 9/11 case if the detention camps are closed. there have been 14 rounds of pretrial hearings, and the military judge has scheduled six more for 2016.
