How many will return to the battle feild?

Monday, September 28, 2009 3:42 PM

An Obama administration task force has so far cleared 75 of the remaining 223 Guantanamo prisoners for release as part of its effort to close the detention camp, a military spokesman said on Monday.

The review team is examining each prisoner's case to decide who will be held for trial and who can be sent home or resettled in other nations.

President Barack Obama had set a January 22 deadline to shut the detention camp although Defense Secretary Robert Gates told ABC News in an interview broadcast on Sunday that "it's going to be tough" to meet the deadline.

  • We will have most of them locked up for a long, long time. Obama can make all the promises he wants, but in truth, he will keep them locked up without trials. If not at Gitmo, somewhere else.

    And I believe a large portion of those he does release will be back fighting in as soon as they can.

  • I think we should give Obama a gun and a pair of boots and let HIM go to Afghanistan.

    His whole handling of Gitmo is a joke. The sad thing is that the joke is on the American people and we will pay for it with blood.
