    my bet is the treatment is harsher than they get at gitmo.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/14/us/14gitmo.html?_r=1

    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. He was also forced to dance with a male interrogator and to obey dog commands, including “stay,” “come” and “bark.”

    A Pentagon inquiry in 2005 found that the methods were “degrading and abusive.”

    In a statement Tuesday night, the Pentagon said that more than a dozen prior investigations had concluded that the interrogations were lawful.

    “However, subsequent to those reviews,” the statement said, “the department adopted new and more restrictive policies and improved oversight procedures for interrogation and detention operations.”
    Do you really wanna bet on this?

    go ahead you post supermax conditions and ill to gitmo... or we can switch it up.....
    LOL - sure. 23 hour lock down. 1 hour of recreation. concrete floors, seats, beds etc. No contact with the outside world that doesn't involve a pane of glass between you and the other person. But hey guess what? No :

    The left lives for the day when they can show how principled they are by releasing these dangerous terrorists into some neighborhood near you. Just as long as they aren't released in any of those liberal's neighborhoods.

    And if they are released overseas and make it back to the battlefield and kill innocents or troops the liberals don't care because innocents are political footballs to be used for gain and none of the liberals or their friends are in the military.
    An innocent person held in Gitmo just might have a grudge ya think?

    Not in Bhkad's world. Which is kind of like Wayne's World. Only with even more sizzurp.

    Not sure. I was trying to figure out first how you can call yourself 'World Wide Legacy' when the only people who've heard of you are either in the U.S. or in U.S. websites....

    did you think this one through my friend.
    That's pretty much what I was thinking.

    As soon as we figure out what reasonable thing to do with those held captive then we can close Gitmo.

    What was the lesson of MLK?

    What was the lesson of Malcolm X?

    Both managed to look beyond the circumstances of their incarcerations.

    You do know that MLK used incarceration to get a point across while Malcolm X advocated violence to get his point across AFTER he got out of jail right? Please stick to copy and pasting stuff.
