People accused of terrorism have a habit of just "disappearing" or being indefinitely detained at Guantanomo without trial.

    The fact is, the US doesn't have a stellar record of respecting the human rights of people it thinks are terrorists. We've done this so long that now people have lost our trust.
    Yeah, but aren't the Dutch acknowledging he was working with AQ? That he did kill plot to kill US or NATO troops.

    Do you think it is smart to let him walk freely there? Even though he wont be, as I am sure they will be keeping an eye on this guy. At least for their own safety.

    I agree with you here. The USA cant be trusted on this basis.

    Quite right. Barrack Obama continues to release terrorists. Best the Dutch or other nations keep them.

    Fruit of the fact we tolerated torture in the first place, in my opinion. There is a price to be paid for moral turpitude.

    I'd be more inclined to trust Americans and their morals rather than anyone resembling a terrorist.

    All sorts of criminals I'd trust rather than a terrorist, too, but that doesn't mean I'm going to let them babysit my kids.

    The Netherlands is a nation of laws and I see no reason why they should break their own law for the sake of appeasing the US.

    Which Country hasn't? Which people haven't? Been going on since the beginning of time. What makes us any different with human nature? Other than the PC world.

    He is their problem now.....let them deal with him.

    But now should he leave there and go out and cause some more Mayhem. Kill or cause a whole bunch of people to be killed.

    Which Dutch Judge will give us his own head on a Silver Platter?

    Apparently so. Many folks are laboring under many illusions created by the government and media.
