i'm not sure more torturing would help matters. The people who were released obviously did something to make the tribunals think that they were no longer a threat. nor am I sure that holding people indefinately is the answer to a problem. It seems more like ignoring the problem to me. what do you propose?


Life in prison?

Do people expect ANY of these detainees, whether terrorists prior or not, to come out waving an American Flag, singing "America the Beautiful" or something?

No. I just don't want to release a shark back into the swimming pool.

Shoulda just let Bush kill them all, isn't that the only way to guarantee these people will never try to do us harm in the future?
