    I always find it funny when a side agrees with numbers from the government on something that thier agenda supports but disagree with the numbers from the government on things that thier agenda disagrees with.

    Let's see, let's balance on the one hand, the intelligence resources of the Pentagon, against those of the "Human Rights" Watch on the other.

    OK, the adults will be finished with this question now.

Those who may not have been terrorists were first kidnapped basically and unlawfully imprisoned and were in contract then with actual terrorists. It is not inconceivable that when released, some that were not terrorists would resort to such as a method of retribution.
    Apparently, that would be somewhere between 14 and 20 percent of the ones we released.
