Your Taxpayer Dollars at Work

For your reading enjoyment I rescue this morsel from page 15 of the New York Times:

SAN JUAN, P.R., Nov. 17 (AP) — The military said on Friday that it planned to build a $125 million compound at the Guantánamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba where it hopes to hold war-crimes trials for terrorism suspects by the middle of next year.

The compound, designed to accommodate as many as 1,200 people, would include dining areas, work spaces and sleeping accommodations for administrative personnel, lawyers, journalists and others involved in trials. It would create three courtrooms to allow for simultaneous trials, and a separate high-security area to house those on trial.

My question is, how many suspected terrorists could you fly to American courtrooms for $125,000,000?

Perhaps they should take care to furnish it comfortably, as the administration may reside there.
