"It is written in the eternal constitution that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters." - Edmund Burke
All of these bleeding hearts are gonna look pretty stupid when this backfires right in their face and it will, no doubt about it. Their phoney righteous indignation and phoney cause is being used by those who want to destroy us and the moonbats are too naive to see it. It's a character flaw of the far left. When it does backfire, they will blame the right for making the terrorists angry. They always justify themselves by blaming others. Not taking responsibility is a far left character flaw. I just witnessed it tonight on CNN. A far left moonbat justified the leader of Al Queda in Yeman who was released from Gitmo by saying if he had been held in Gitmo that he would probably be angry and would do something to retaliate also. They never take responsibility for their errors in judgement. It's arrogance gone to seed.

It will probably backfire because they will go to the other extreme. Conservative extreme lock em all up liberal extreme let em all go. Typical government methods at handling problems.
What needs to be done is to establish a legal process that sorts them all out and provides some form of justice.
You have some here that say they are prisoners of war. If that is so then the geneva convention applies. Others say they are thugs. If that is so then the criminal justice system should handle them.
As a nation that prides itself on fairness justice and due process to hold prisoners that are only suspected of terror actions indefinitly and denying the accused the right to prove their innocence or guilt is not a good thing.
If we are holding some one that has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt is truly a terrorist then that person should be held via a legal sentencing process.
It is the warehousing and torture policies with inmates being denied the basic rights to legal recourse that has brought about the calls for closing Gitmo
Then comes the problem of where do we put them after if they are legally convicted? They are a special class of prisoner in the sense that they are non US citizens that have perptrated attacks against the US and they would not really be safe in a military or civilian prisons general populations.
