RAW STORY’s Rachel Oswald reported:

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Judge Henley’s decision to accept the detainees’ legal pleading was not troubling at a press conference this afternoon.

FOX News reporter Wendell Goler asked Gibbs if the decision by the judge to accept the legal filings was troubling, given President Obama’s order that the military commission proceedings be halted.

Gibbs responded with “No. The president — not unlike our dealings with Afghanistan and Pakistan –we’ve developed a process to review the status of those at Guantanamo Bay and determine how best to deal with individual detainees and how to bring those that committed horrible acts to justice and that continues as well.”
