    U.S. may keep Secret Prisoners in custody after Afghan War exit....

    It appears BO has to make a decision over these Prisoners in Afghanistan, secret prisoners.....note the last resort to take them into a US Judicial System. If they were caught in battle against us.....then we need to take them out and execute them. Otherwise they will just take up the fight somewhere else. What interests me was the Russians captured. What say ye?



    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~

    Kill 'em. Find their families, and send them the remains with a note that their relative will not be seeing Allah. Ever.

    Yeah. I wouldn't mind GITMO, but given that Obama promised to close it a long time ago and that the administration prefers the Justice system instead, I'd rather see them go straight to hell, and get it over with. Didn't the administration release the head of ISIS in 2009?

    At the end of the war...release the prisoners. If you they are not prisoners of war, try them in court. Everything else is a violation of sovereignty. And I am all for these bad guys being captured since we are at war.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. Or what was that saying, "We have met the enemy and they are us."
    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.

    Well we shouldn't have to take care of them.....let the Afghans Government decide what to do with them. Trying them in a court of law for Terrorism. Then they have no Rights so therefor execute them.

    I agree, if they were caught in Afghanistan let the government there have them. If they were caught in IRaq, let the Iraqi government handle them.
