    That's pretty much the thought process behind these actions. Or at least the effort put into said process.

    I couldn't stop laughing at that one. Isnt that a pretty picture, Capt. Jihadist living right behind me and 150 yards from the flightline. Im sure thats a pretty tasty target; 8 $350 million dollar C-17's that he can take his Semtex ladened SUV over the fence and go for a drive...Im an aircraft mech. on Hickam AFB, HI by the way. I for one agree entirely with Gitmo.
    Military documents show that Mr. Qahtani’s repeated interrogations at Guantánamo in 2002 and 2003 included prolonged isolation, sleep deprivation, forced nudity, exposure to cold and involuntary grooming.
    What they consider torture as changed so much over the years...Putting folks in a cold room?, sleep deprevation?, loud music? BEING FORCED TO GROOM!!?? kemon people! most of these folks could go a long way on some water, a bar of soap and a comb. Why dont you go back to the 1940's and ask the Japanese or Vietnemese in the 60/70's or hell even the sandbox countries of today on their techniques of interrogation, im sure they's love to show you.
    The actions taking place at these prisons and "secret CIA interrogation facilities" have probably thwarted more attacks and potential treats to the US and our interests that the average person would much rather not know about. You're average joe shmo is not running around town scared ****less always aware of the nearest protective shelter because he's expecting a hijacked airbus to come down on his head any second, or the kid holding the backpack on the bus to suddenly blow up. I believe this is partly because the general public doesn't even have half a clue how real the threat is. And a main reason they dont know this is because of places like Gitmo.
    We could have countinued this way if it hadn't been for the few jounalists and "hi mom" picture taking idiots showing what really went on there letting all those human rights activists to get their foot in the door.

    I for one would be extremely interested in what those who oppose such a place would say if God-forbid, one of these former guests of Cuba's beach resort got off because of an overly-fair trial in the US and turned around to recruit more members of his org. to kill Americans abroad or strapped himself with explosives and took a walk to the elementary school down the street...

    And just curious how would we intend to "investigate" and perform these trials? This isnt like Nuremberg in 45'-46' where the crimes were clear and easy to prosecute These people were captured during a time of war. And im pretty damned sure that when we took em' we had good cause. After being on the streets in both Iraq and Afghanistan I tended to know the difference between the good guy and the bad guy when one of em is lighting up the wall next to you with his AK. There will never be solid evidence proving that these folks were active combatants against US interests. The judicial system is going to be way to friendly to anyone from Gitmo recieving a trial because of that.

    Keep it open. keep em there.
