    The fate of a group of prisoners held in near-total secrecy by U.S. forces at a prison in Afghanistan is hanging in limbo, the facility's commander said, as Washington gropes for options after its legal right to hold them there expires in December. The inmates - all foreign nationals captured on battlefields around the world - could be transferred to the U.S. court system or, as a last resort, to the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba, Brigadier General Patrick J. Reinert told Reuters.

    The quandary over what to do with the detainees held in a prison near Bagram airfield, north of Kabul, has rekindled the outrage over the U.S. policy of rendition in the early phases of the Afghan war. The United State abandoned that policy under President Barack Obama, but the detention of those being held near Bagram is a reminder that the issue has not been concluded. Almost nothing is known of the detainees' identities. The United States has declined to disclose their nationalities, where they were captured and how many are still in its custody. Most of the prisoners are Pakistani, according to the human rights group Justice Project Pakistan. Some are from Yemen, Russia and Saudi Arabia.....snip~

    I have little doubt that most will be set free so either we, the good old USA, the Afghani or our allies will have to fight them again. Much like those Taliban commanders set free in the Bergdahl trade.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Smells like the Bush doctrine.

    Right. We shouldn't have to take care of these folks to start with. If the Muzzies can't take care of their own, or won't, then they don't get to tell us what we should do when we're doing their work for them. Sorry, but I'm feeling particularly ornery today.

    Yep and we could recommend they keep them locked up.....or do what they got to do. That would be our advice. But lets be real clear.....should they show up killing our people anywhere else. First things first.....we are coming to talk to you. Make no mistake about that.

    I am not for trying them and using the Judicial system to keep them locked up for the rest of their lives.....Cut the expense. Like TNE said let whatever country decide that is their domain.

    Anything that's related to terrorism.....no point in keeping these guys around.

    For the terrorist, a military tribunal and death. For the Taliban soldier or fighter, threat them as POW's and keep them in GITMO until the president of Afghanistan says different. I see a difference between the two.

    "The Defense Department said that the man now known as Baghdadi was released in 2004"

    Defense department works for Obama. Again, the commander says 2009. Punditfact is known for being less than honest. I'll take the commander's word and the word of the foreign press. I'm blaming Obama because the facts as I see them point right to him and not to a commander who has nothing to gain by offering a lie.
