quote: I completely agree with those of you that are saying that a trial for these guys is ludicrous. Would they have ever considered giving someone they captured a "fair trial?" No, they freaking cut their heads off and film it for the rest of the world. Why can't we do in kind?
quote: We are rewriting the rules that served us so we can punish these insurgents.
quote: What rules? In a traditional war prisoners would be kept until such time as hostilities ceased or their superiors would negotiate for a release/transfer etc etc.This is a completely unprecedented situation. These are NOT soldiers! Please get that through your heads. They have no clearly identified superiors who represent them. They don't have a country that officially recognizes them as combatants. We really have no option but to throw them in camps and try to figure out what to do with them.And no, simply closing Guantanamo and letting them all free is NOT a sane option.
