Should Obama Send 6 Gitmo Detainees Back to Yemen?

Considering the "Underwear bomber" trained with Al-Qaeda in Yemen?

The Obama administration plans to return six Yemeni Guantanamo detainees to their home country, a risky breakthrough that could lead to the release of dozens more detainees.

Yemenis are the largest group at Guantanamo, accounting for 97 of the 210 remaining detainees, with at least 34 cleared for release. But al-Qaeda is believed to be thriving in Yemen, a destitute nation with little security.

  • It seems that it would be prudent to put that plan on hold until there can be an investigation into this whole mess. To continue on this path with the knowledge we have now will prove him to be one who suffers from tunnel-vision without the flexibility needed to respond to events in the world.

  • No, we should take them to a missile testing site, strap a bomb to them, handcuffed to a convicted death row inmate and boom two birds one stone.

  • I don't know why the detainees would have a problem with Chrissy's plan. Suicide attacks are there trademark...and then there is that whole 72 virgin thing.............. Now the death row inmate might have a legitimate problem with it...they would be "going" with terrorists and there would be no lethal injection thing.....

    Oh heck...let's just John Wayne it.....test that missile! We could even shoot it over to Ahmadinajad as a little "gift."
