Two and a half years ago, US forces began herding and shippin off known terrorists and members of organisations to Guatanamo Bay. Have u ever wondered whats happened to them now?
Back in 2002, when America was flying terror suspects out of Afghanistan to its new prison in Guantanamo Bay, the Pentagon was in no doubt that it was incarcerating the "worst of the worst", in the words of one spokesman.

"They are bad guys and... and if let out on the street, they will go back to the proclivity of trying to kill Americans and others," Rear Adm John D Stufflebeem said at the time.

Two and a half years later, the transfer of four French nationals out of Guantanamo has brought to 139 the number of "bad guys" repatriated from their sun-baked cells in Cuba.

So first they capture and take them away, then they released them and now they can come back and try and do it all over again?

Yeah...really makes sense dont it!!!

This is so stupid on the goverments choices for the inmates of GB. As stated, some have already rejoined the fight against the coaltion. just what we need, someone who knows inside out of GB and knows he wants revenge. Or even better, they can sue the people who imprisoned them.

I agree with you in pricipal. However, if we fail to uphold the constituional quaranteed rights even when applying them to otehrs, we become no better than the terrorist themselves.

Nice selection of quotes there.

Try these instead:

Originally by BBC
For Amnesty International, the stream of transfers reinforces its argument that detention without trial as part of an open-ended "war on terror" is unjustified.

"The number of people who have been released and who have not then been charged in their home countries basically underscores the fact that they should never have been in Guantanamo Bay in the first place," a spokesperson told BBC News Online after news broke of the French transfers.

They did everything to us, they tortured our bodies, they tortured our minds, they tortured our ideas and our [Muslim] religion," said one, Afghan ex-detainee Mohammed Khan, on his return to Kabul in March.

Amnesty International, you might of heard of their work involving human rights.

Don't worry though, if they rejoin the 'battle field' the soldiers can just shoot them dead, saves on the paperwork.
