They are being tortured and probably killed in modern day concentration camps!
They are so fat from their meals that they need exercise equipment brought in.
What part of .. this is a waste of money and we should either run it right or close it .. dont' you get?
Why are Americans going hungry? Is it the fault of the Guantanamo inmates? Is it the culmination of some dastardlay Islamic plot hatched and implemented by the inmates?
Anyone fancy a round of golf after dinner?

I hope you do understand that most of them are innocent and have been abducted (sold to) the US government...

Federal Prisons aren't as bad as the State run Facilities. Hell, from people I personally know that've been in the Fed Pen, they claim it's like a college campus. They'd rather go to a Fed Pen then a state pen any day.
Put these terrorist in the State Pen where there are no special privileges, except for their dietary and prayer privileges, which everyone is granted. Equality.

SPENDING MONEY on this when so many Americans are hurting ... that's the point.

Most of them are innocent farmers. As I said previously in this thread, you are aware that we allowed muslim extremists to go around and grab anyone they wanted and turn them in as terrorists to take to GITMO for a reward.
So naturally these guys went around grabbing farmers that weren't of use to them and gave them over in exchange for money. There is a guy in there that was a farmer, has been there for over 11 years and hasn't seen his family. They know it's true and he was supposed to be freed, but he's still there.
So you can't just say execute and imprison.
The brutality of tactics used to force-feed inmates at the Guantanamo Bay prison is escalating, according to the last British citizen being held at the camp. He says that metal-tipped feeding tubes are causing already-starving inmates to vomit.
Follow RT’s day-by-day timeline of the Gitmo hunger strike.
46-year-old Shaker Aamer, from London, has been held at Guantanamo Bay prison without charge or trial for over 11 years. He confirmed to the Guardian newspaper that prison authorities are intensifying their efforts to try and break strikers by introducing new equipment.
One detainee was admitted to hospital around 10 days ago after having the feeding tube pushed into his lungs rather than his stomach.
“The administration is getting ever more angry and doing everything they can to break our hunger strike. Honestly, I wish I was dead,” Aamer said from the camp. The speech was recorded the previous week, but was published on Saturday after the newspaper received the recording.
He also alleged that nurses at the prison are discarding their name tags prior to entering the camp so as not to be identified by prisoners, who could potentially file complaints against them.
GUANTANAMO BAY U.S. NAVAL BASE, Cuba, March 1 (Reuters) - The U.S. admiral in charge of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp is defending the decision to build a $744,000 soccer field for well-behaved prisoners, and said critics misunderstood the facility's purpose and logistics.
Rear Admiral David Woods said the camp's mission was not to punish foreign captives unnecessarily, many of whom have been held there for 10 years already. He said his job is to detain them away from the battlefield under safe and humane conditions, and that providing socialization opportunities was part of that.
