Where are the Gitmo prisoners heading?

Once they shut down the facility. I know other countries have agreed to take some, but only if we house some as well. What options are they looking at stateside?

  • I love hearing this question and, yes, I would love to know the answer. But here is a little food for thought. Gitmo is not our only prisoner facility. Gitmo has a total of approximately 245 detainees (as of January 2009). Camp Bucca (Umm Qasr, Iraq) has a reported 30,000 detainees.
    Gitmo is not our only prisoner camp! Just read up ladies before you think we are "freeing" ALL of the detainees!

  • from what i understand (and i could be very wrong about this) is we will be sending them back to their country, to be dealt with by their government. thats what i have been told anyway.

  • The Pentagon has not said how many of the 240 or so detainees would be transferred to the United States or where they would be held. Gates has estimated that 50 to 100 detainees would be shipped to this country.

  • why does it matter? Can we not hold prisoners? Has Charles MaNSON escaped? Ted Bundy?
    Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols? Richard Reed???????

    I don't understand WHY this would be a problem? We have VERY dangerous criminlas here already, some in jail, some not

  • Wow, you are ignorant! I can not believe that. So you think if the prison closes the prisoners should just roam the country and cause more problems and more crime, because you do not agree with the new president? Wow, you've got some amazing ideas! Maybe you should run for president!! I bet you would do a much better job!!!
