I am reading a great book called My Guantanamo Diary so I was interested in everyone's opinion. Do you think it is right that prisoners are held without being charged and without trial for years?

I was just looking for more info and found this article. It kind of scared me a bit. I'm all for keeping terrorists as far away as possible.
"President-Elect Obama is planning to ship dozens of terrorist suspects from the camp to face criminal trial in the US. It is a controversial move but one that demonstrates how abruptly he plans to change Washington in terms of policy, personnel and tone the moment he enters the Oval Office."

only really bad people go there.
and you hear that from what source? based on what evidence?

Ednarooni Obviously there's a reason for jails, obviously there is a reason for prison, obviously there is a reason for this.. I don't dwell on why people are in jail, prisons, etc, and if I did, I probably wouldn't be happy about HOW they got there, WHY they got there, or what they experience AFTER they get there...point is, if we didn't have these places, we might be in a WORSE place.
or you might be disturbed by the fact that some were turned in for a bounty, on scant evidence, and never given any chance to face or even know the charges against them. or to present evidence of their innocence.
