  • I don't see the problem with keeping them in CUBA!??!? They're enemy combatants, and not legal citizens of the USA. They don't GET rights, as far as I'm concerned.

  • I bet Leavenworth for the ones that they want to keep detained. but I read a lot of the ones released went back home and then broadcast on an Al Qaeda site how they are going to get revenge and ONE of those became chief of the Taliban's military committee! so Yeah. I hope they find a secure dark hole for them.

    I think it was on CBS news

  • Agree with Lori..are we still going to pay to have a courtroom put inside the prison for them? Makes no sense might as well keep them at Gitmo

  • Gitmo is already set up, why pay extra to move them to the states? Waste of money, IMO.

  • Most of them are innocent and were thrown in there because of racial profiling.

  • That is probably true, Anon :45. There have been reports and articles about so many who have been put in Gitmo because they had a "similar" name as a terrorist . Many mix-ups and mistakes. That is just one of the things that make you get so angry with what happened during the last administration. I bet Cheney will answer for that some day. I hope he will,anyway. He is such a disgusting man.
