  2. "Despite promises by Obama soon after his inauguration to close the facility, 171 prisoners remain. Of the 779 detained in total, roughly 600 have been released and eight have died over the course of the past decade. Of the eight deaths, six are suspected suicides. During the administration of President George W. Bush, many detainees at Guantanamo were subjected to painful stress positions; extended solitary confinement; threatening military dogs; threats of torture and death; and prolonged exposure to extremes of heat, cold, and noise that amounted to torture or cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment. When Obama took office in January 2009, about 242 prisoners remained. Only a handful of the roughly 600 detainees released over the past 10 years were ever charged with a criminal offense.




    Of the 171 prisoners that remain, the Obama administration has said it plans to prosecute 32, yet only one prisoner, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, currently faces any formal charges. Another five, those accused of planning the September 11, 2001 attacks, have charges pending against them, but formal charges have yet to be brought and they have not been arraigned. Of the remaining 139 prisoners, the administration has said it plans to detain 46 indefinitely without ever bringing charges against them. Another 89 detainees have been approved for transfer to home or third countries."

  8. So many cases, where to begin?

    Just watch "The Road to Guantanamo", you will get the picture. Unless of course you are blind.

    The United States has the highest documented incarceration rate in the world.
    At year-end 2009 it was 743 adults incarcerated per 100,000 population.
    7,225,800 adults were under correctional supervision (probation, parole, jail, or prison) in 2009.
    And a majority of them claimed to be innocent.

    Just to make sure they aren't facing towards the wrong god? Seems they are more accommodating towards the enemy than they are a US High School valedictorian during a commencement speech.

    Beats :censored2: in the ground next to a pile of explosives aimed at us. Make sure that A/C isn't too low, it may get a bit chilly for these cockroaches.

    Now I hear that Gitmo detainees, who are on a hunger strike, won't be force fed during the hours of ramadan fasting.

    Shoot, I wouldn't force feed them at all. They are adults and can make their own decisions. I'd just put the pork chops down and they can eat or not !!!

    If someone refuses to eat I would let him starve. Not the government's fault if he dies.
