    If there is one place in the world to isolate and secure - our Supermax are made for that.

    The enemy combatant thing is much more complicated - not sure if this mean "imminent threat"; I think it is a more 'elastic' definition.

    Bottom line for me is if we seize someone ( like the recent abu-Anas al libi in Libya) it is because they are really criminals, who have taken up arms against the US - or are in the plotting stage to do so.

    Seems logical if that strict definition is applied, we should be able to convict them in US courts.
    If we can't - let foreign gov'ts deal with them.

    Best way to really persue our true national securirty, but untangle ourselves from perpetual war.


    Well I would disagree Annatta.....moreover. Prisons weren't made to stop people from breaking into them here in the US. Which this is what would then start to see with their cells and or sympathizers.

    i think we are capable of keeping known terrorists in supermax prisons. my case in point is Ramzi Yousef, one of the main perpetrators of the 1993 world trade center bombing, he is currently in adx florence.

    all well and good, but if the US captures these "enemy combatants", we should put them on trial.
    I'm against the Military Tribunals and Guantanamo, so almost any alternative sounds good, including this one. Yemen does seem to have security problems, but who doesn't? I approve of your mantra and it works.

    Well like I said.....US Prisons aren't designed to stop people from breaking in. Not Armed break ins. Not even with our Supermax. Moreover all it takes is The Right Hostage to take an area of a Prison. If not the Whole Prison depending on that Hostage.

    If we are going to put those who are Militarized and who have nothing to lose. inside the US.....then yeah! Telling them they will be locked up for life. Rather than be allowed to meet their maker. What do you think their responses will be. Do you think they will accept pacification? What else is there other than a claim to fame in going out in their blaze of glory?

    Why wouldn't they? Do you think they can someone on the inside? What you don't think things change up some by Putting them in a Prison in the US?

    Where do you think most Supermax Prisons are and what do you think is around them?

    i highly doubt any terrorist organization can get their hands on tanks or any military vehicles on u.s soil, or smuggle weapons into a super-max prison.
