    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.
    If we were really who we say we are, we'd cut them loose.

    Proof that the US is a nation of hypocrites are those prisoners.

    How have these terrorists been detained unjustly?

    Obama's drones don't care if a few innocent people are killed. And Obama does not give the people killed by his drones a trial. He just kills them. We should move our troops out of Club Getmo and let a few drones finish the job, just like he's doing now in Pakistan and other parts of the world.

    I don't know if most of them innocent. That's kind of a stretch. Maybe we have no evidence.

    Innocent may be a bit too simplistic. Let's just say a lot are completely innocent and only a very-very few are "the worst of the worst", which is what Cheney claimed of all of those prisoners. Nonetheless, Obama lacks the 'nads to free any of them.

    Although pulled off the battlefield in Afghanistan, a lot of these guys were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, like this poor chum, who eventually died

    Two-thirds of the men cleared for release but still held are Yemenis. In one particular case, the administration’s refusal to release any of them led to the death of one of them, a man named Adnan Latif, despite his having been repeatedly cleared for release.

    A perfect example of proving we are not who we say we are. Killing innocent people---no problem.

    How are they terrorists? Would you resist an invasion of your country?
