Following US attack, Trump warns against the return of ISIS

Map locates shooting downtown Manhattan New York on Octrober 31,2017

President Donald Trump said the man accused of plowing a truck down a New York City bicycle path on Tuesday, killing eight people, entered the US through a program called the Diversity Visa Lottery - and he blamed a political rival for that program.

"Would love to send the NYC terrorist to Guantanamo but statistically that process takes much longer than going through the Federal system", Trump has stated in a tweet.

US President Donald Trump called for capital punishment for Manhattan terrorist Sayfullo Saipov.

Trump has been vocal in condemning the yesterday's attack carried out by the 29-year-old ISIS-inspired man who ploughed a pickup truck down a crowded bike path near the World Trade Centre, killing eight people and injuring almost a dozen others. He also said there is "something appropriate" about keeping him in NY. "Should move fast. DEATH PENALTY!" the president said in a tweet.

Saipov's court appearance came just hours after President Donald Trump said he would consider sending Saipov to the Guantanamo Bay detention centre in Cuba - an idea the White House reinforced by saying it considered Saipov to be an "enemy combatant".

Senator Lindsay Graham, a Republican, yesterday repeated his criticism of the Justice Department for charging Saipov in the courts rather than treating him as an enemy combatant.

Meanwhile, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was questioning a second person from Uzbekistan, 32-year-old Mukhammadzoir Kadirov.

The complaint said he was particularly motivated by a video in which Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi - the leader of Islamic State - exhorted Muslims in the United States and elsewhere to support the group's cause.

"I promise you that how we treat Mr. Saipov in this judicial process will say a lot more about us than it will say about him", Patton said.

The tweet was one of many from Trump since the attack in NY. Similarly, the US on Wednesday indicted 36-year-old Mirsad Kandic in federal court in NY.

Five of the eight people killed in the attack were part of a group from Argentina celebrating the 30th anniversary of their high school graduation.

Even so, Trump's attorney general, Jeff Sessions, on Thursday left open the possibility that Guantanamo detention could remain an option.

Experts also said it would be highly improbable to send Saipov to Guantanamo because a federal judge would have to agree to turn him over to a military commission, and no person has ever been sent to Guantanamo straight from U.S. soil.

Vladeck noted that American criminal courts, which have secured hundreds of terrorism-related convictions since September 11, have been more efficient than the military tribunal process at Guantanamo Bay.

Tuesday's assault was the deadliest in NY since the September 11, 2001, when more than 2600 people died in the World Trade Centre attack.

Trump has passed on other chances to send suspects there, including earlier this week, when the Justice Department said a militant captured in Libya and accused of playing an instrumental role in the 2012 Benghazi attacks would be prosecuted in federal court in Washington, where a trial for the alleged mastermind is already under way.
