    As for the 10% or so who it is believed have gone back to fight us one word describes that result - DUH!

    I'm surprised that more haven't been released and then rallied to fight us after being held for YEARS without cause in a torture racked prison camp.

    You have proven my point so well with your post, thanks so much!

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.
    Why are Republicans so afraid of anyone that's not a white christian American? It's like you're so fearful that the boogie man is going to get you....it appears you have no faith in America at all and that the only way you think we "win" is to crap all over out ethics in the name of "security."

    Now that's scary!

    Can you please show me these "liberals" you claim want to "let them all go?"

    Why are there so many people who keep posting that Democrats / Liberals want to simply release all of the prisoners? I do not know of anyone with creditability asking for that? It's just another lie being spread by desperate and scared Republicans.

    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.

    Good post.

    I don't believe waterboarding is torture. I also believe we should get information in any fashion available that saves American lives.

    I believe we should keep them right where they are. Gitmo. Secure, warm, good food, medical care, etc, etc.

    I think you are having a literacy problem.
    So, define aggressive interrogation and water-boarding.
    Please, do nothing else but define at this segment.

    Yup, nearly every single…No, you are wrong.

    Sadly, you have no clue.
    1 – These foreigners have not been found guilty of terrorism and DOD data shows that you are wrong for assuming they are all terrorists (only 8% were characterized as al Qaeda fighters).
    2 – The point is that foreigners do not need the protection of our Constitution to seek relief from unlawful detention.
