U.S. military executions soon?

The U.S. military just released new guidelines regarding its execution protocol.

For the most part, the procedures are a bunch of gobbledy-gook. But this one line caught my eye. According to a summary of the changes, the new policy “allows other locations to be used for executions.”

(Previously, military executions took place in Leavenworth, Kansas, which is where military death row is located.)

I am wondering if they have Guantanamo Bay in mind or perhaps other places not on U.S. soil.

FYI, two people on military death row are believed to have exhausted their appeals.

You can see the new report by going here:
