Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the son-in-law of Osama bin Laden, served as a propagandist who praised the 9/11 attacks and warned there would be more. Officials say he was arrested within the last week in Jordan. A statement from Attorney General Eric Holder said the arrest demonstrates there where is “no corner in the world” where terror suspects can escape justice.

The case marks a legal victory for the Obama administration, which has long sought to charge senior al-Qaida suspects in American federal courts instead of holding them at the military detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. But congressional Republicans said immediately that Congress opposes high-threat terror suspects being brought into the United States.

According to the watchdog group Human Rights First, 67 foreign terror suspects have been convicted in U.S. federal courts. By comparison, of the thousands of detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, only seven were convicted by military tribunals.
