Hmm......My opinon on the whole thing is that closing Gitmo will change maybe little but then again, we sometime gather intelligence from the captives
there, wheter they are terrorists or soldiers.
yes yes yes, i have heard much about the torture and way the CIA handles the detainees there, and yes it is inhumane and such. But honestly, i think
they know where to stop. I mean, where to kill them or not. What the CIA is doing over there is about possibly the same thing that terrorsists would
possibly do to our soldiers or allied soldeiers. Do terrorsists necessarily follow the Geneva Conventions when they kill and maim innocent civillians
in Afghanistan and Iraq? i dont think so. And for those who attack the CIA on the basis that their not follwing the Geneva Conventions, whatever. The
intelligence gathered there may of thwarted the half dozen or so plots that were to be attempted in the US.
But then again, i must agree that the CIA must be smart enough to know who IS a combatant and who is an INFORMER or a middle man. Many of said
detainees may be innocents. Maybe not, and i think that the CIA SHOULD at least tone down a bit on their "intelligence gathering" tactics. It can be
pretty hectic, crazy, and inhuman to be put thorugh that kind of scrutiny. But i say allow it to the deatiness who ARE confirmed terrorists. Ehh but
that's my narrow perception of Gitmo.
I even heard that if they close it down they might send the prisoners to Afghanistan!!!
The US is helping expand a prison in Afghanistan to take some deatainees from Guantanamo Bay, while administration officials argue about whether
to bring the to the US to face trials.
Does anyone here smell a stupid idea??? OMG, just give the Taliban a wide entrance to getting back their fellow "freedom fighter" breaathern by
invading whatever base their at. Afghanistan is not nearly as protected as Iraq is by US/Coalition forces. Sure there are some there. But of all
places, Afghan.? I think we should send them to a US base in the UK or somewhere else where there wouldnt be a chance for their friends to bail them
SO ALL IN ALL, i dont think there would be any drastic changes made. Its just the hype that surrounds Gitmo that makes it a hot topic.
