Speaking to reporters, Sessions said, unfortunately, the threat of terrorism is not going away, but that the Trump administration is on the offensive.
“Terrorists should know this: This administration will use all lawful tools at our disposal, including prosecution and article three courts or at Guantanamo Bay,” Sessions said.
No alleged terrorist arrested in the United States has ever been sent to Guantanamo Bay.
Sessions did not confirm whether Sayfullo Saipov will be tried in New York.
President Trump initially wanted Saipov to be tried in Guantanimo Bay, but later tweeted that he wants the attacker to be tried in the city, and is calling for the death penalty.
