    Sending people to be tortured to death isn't solving any problem.

    Damn the US for making them reject their citizens!

    Not when it means that they will be tortured to death. Similar to how the EU doesn't like to extradite when the death penalty is a possibility.

    Not "therefore". Some of the countries of origin have every intention of torturing them to death. Some countries refuse to accept them. There are issues that must be considered and solved before Gitmo can be closed. Despite your false assumptions and BS solution, these things must be dealt with.

    So countries are saying "oh if you give them to us then we are going to torture them!"?

    Yes. Other countries refuse to accept them. These are real issues and they exist despite your false assumptions and nonsense solution of "ship 'em back!"

    Sorry, but the world is more complicated than you expected.

    Some will be tortured to death. Some are refused by their countries. These things must be addressed and solutions found before we can close Gitmo.

    no way
    just as we deport illegal immigrants who are not here legally
    we should deport thise who have been found not guilty
    it is the recipient country's problem to deal with their own citizens thereafter
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed
