A judge who has grown impatient with the Obama administration’s handling of a young Guantanamo Bay detainee is preparing to decide whether he’ll go home to Afghanistan or to the United States for prosecution.

U.S. District Judge Ellen Huvelle was scheduled to hear arguments Thursday in the case of Mohammed Jawad. He has been held for 6 1/2 years at the U.S. detention facility in Cuba for allegedly wounding two U.S. soldiers and their interpreter by throwing a grenade at their jeep in Afghanistan.
