ATTORNEY GENERAL/CABINET/JEFF SESSIONS: "Mr. Sessions opposes using federal courts to prosecute Qaeda suspects. He supports holding those suspected of terroism at the military prison in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. [In his 1-6-11 Press Release the Senator stated] 'The president’s pledge to shutter Gitmo was built on the naïve premise that softening America’s image would somehow soften our enemies’ resolve.' "
