We have heard a ton of horror stories from this place. However, transferring them to another horrible place doesn't solve our problem. Also, releasing them is not a very reasonable thought either.

The story says it could contain plotters for 9/11 (we are so dumb we still don't know who planned it), so if we release them they could gain a huge following and eventually attack the US again! What would be the correct way to go about the issue?
