    The biggest problem is that if you try them in the USA, they will be found not guilty because any evidence obtained by torture is not admissible in Court. That would translate to the release of Khalid Sheik Mohammad who allegedly was one of the planners of the WTC attacks. Then there is "fruit of a tainted tree" where any other evidence tied to that would not be admitted. Almost all would go free. That is why the US wants trial by Military Tribunal. Talk about slippery slopes, eh?

    They aren't short enough to be productive lettuce pickers and you would see labor problems if they were busboys where sausage and bacon were served for breakfast.

    Maybe 7/11 clerks and taxi drivers.

    Release them? Try them? Leave them there indefinitely... forever?

    Do we lose any alleged moral high ground by detaining then indefinitely? Should we care?
    Kill them. Except for the ones that you could glean any valuable intelligence from. Detain those indefinitely.

    If you just let them go there is too much risk. It's been shown that a significant number of them go right back to war against the USA even after being subjected to the best deprogramming methods known to medical science when we tried that.

    If you put them into regular prisons in the US, then they could brainwash and radicalize the multitude of violent black Muslims in our domestic prison system. Many of whom will eventually be walking the streets in the USA. Never forget that Al Qaeda's roots are in the Egyptian prison system. And ours isn't really that much different. Don't want them to take root here. Fight them over there instead.

    Where in the Bible, "kill your son if he does not believe in the same god as you"? Where in the Bible, "where set foot a Muslim, this land belongs to Islam"? No need to compare the incomparable. And the vast majority of Muslims wholeheartedly support those provisions of their religion. And none of them does condemn Muslim terrorism.

    Only in the Arab world, 60% of young people are unemployed. They did not and do not want to work, but to fight against the infidels.

    Sounds like the Democrats party type of person.

    Here are some.

    Ezekiel 9:6 "Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women . . . "

    Isaiah 13:16 "Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished."

    Deuteronomy 13:15 "Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly . . . "

    Leviticus 20:9 "For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death . . . "

    Exodus 32:27 ". . . Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour."

    Deut 21:10-12 "When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the LORD thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive, And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife; Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails; "

    Exodus 31:15 " . . . whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death."

    Deut 21:21 "And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die . . . "

    I have a fairly large library. There's a Bible, the Gospel, the Koran, the Book of Changes, the Mahabharata.
    However, the translation. I do not speak Arabic.
