This article is for everyone who says “nothing is happening”.
A lot is happening, it just happens to be behind the scenes in many cases….but that is starting to change.
The work done in secret is slowly and steadily starting to sneak out and be revealed.

The U.S. military is building a courtroom at Guantanamo Bay to hold public war crimes trials, which the public cannot watch in person — and other tales of diminished transparency as the wartime detention operation is posed to enter its 21st year.https://t.co/IXTwAUuLbC

Many have quickly and rightly pointed out this would be the exact opposite of what Biden would want.
So…what is going on?
And who’s really in charge here?
Guantanamo Bay is continuing to EXPAND.
The exact opposite of what Biden wants…
I wonder WHY?? HOW is this possible??https://t.co/w79xniFJdO
Pentagon Approves New Courtroom at Guantánamo Bay
The Department of Defense is constructing a new courtroom for war crimes trials

Newsmax had more details on the story:
The Department of Defense is constructing a new courtroom for war crimes trials at Guantánamo Bay which will not allow the public inside the chamber, The New York Times reports.
The courtroom, the second at the military base, will also allow two military judges to preside over separate proceedings simultaneously. In larger cases, such as the trials of five men accused of planning the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, the hearings would take place in the currently existing chamber that is accessible by the public via a gallery.
The new chamber, which costs about $4 million, would be used for smaller cases. A gallery was not included in the new chamber, which the Pentagon said was due to the additional cost involved, meaning that people need a secret clearance in order to enter.
Ron Flesvig, a spokesman for the Office of Military Commissions, told the Times that because of the lack of physical gallery, the court staff are working on a “virtual gallery with multiple camera angles simultaneously displayed.”
The new courtroom will also broadcast a delayed video of the proceedings to a separate building where members of the public can watch. This delay allows the judge or a security official to mute anything classified that might be revealed during the proceedings and is also used in broadcasts of proceedings in the currently existing courtroom.
Things are starting to get VERY interesting, don’t you think?
Get your popcorn ready…
