    Exodus 31:15 " . . . whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death."
    You quoted the "Old" Testament. Not from the Gospel, on the laws of which were based the United States.
    And how often have you seen killed Jew who worked on the Sabbath?

    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.
    Quite the conundrum, innit? They were brought to Gitmo illegally, wrongfully detained, never tried and now it looks like the only safe bet is to kill them.
    Honestly, if you wanted to map out a course of action guaranteed to create martyrs and rallying points and radicalise all the extended families of your victims while alienating your allies, I say you nailed it. Confirmed some of the nasty rumours, too.

    Running Man. Better yet, if they can swim from Gitmo to Florida naked and unaided we'll give them transport to wherever in the world they want to go.

    They are enemy combatants. execute them. If the tables were turn they would be beheading your ass.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

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

    Do we lose any alleged moral high ground by detaining then indefinitely? Should we care?

    They're prisoners of war. Careful of the company you keep, my old Dad used to warn me.

    Most of these guys are innocent, and we knew that they were back in 2004. It's time to just cut our losses and wait for them to sue us.

    Re: What should we do with the Guantanamo prisoners?

    Since the Obama administration decided to take the route of using our court system in dealing with these yahoos, I think it would be advantages to shut the place down returning the prisoners to their own countries instead of affording them the opportunity to make a mockery of our judicial system and then end up in a prison here in the U.S. where the taxpayers end up providing for their three squares a day etc. But on release into their homeland, since this administration is big on drones, use them to blow them to heaven where they can meet their 70 virgins.

    even the ones who weren't guilty probably want to kill Americans now after being detained unjustly for years
