    Now that those reports are out and rumors/pressures on the USA are defused, why not keep GITMO running where they are until all prisoners have had their day in court?

    because the left-liberals and the ACLU wants to see GITMO closed. apparently they have no idea that there are no jails ran by the Taliban and Al Qaeda. they believed in killing all foreign hostages.
    Plus some countries refused to take back soem of the GITMO prisoners like China. Saudi Arabia has a big resettlement program which apparently acording to Carnegie Endowment for International Peace actually work.

    I wish that Obama need re-consider before make official to close the Gitmo prisons because of unable to find place to handle Gitmo detainees.

    DOD changed their GS system to pay-for-performance program, NASP IIRC.

    Yup. And I wonder happened to the two trillion dollars the Department of Defense cannot account for.
    I am personally disgusted that we are still caught up in the Bush administration's attempts to set terrorism apart from crime. Treating it as a crime subject to law enforcement processes has no political pizzazz and would not justify a war. As far as our doctrine is concerned, the "terrorists" have forfeited their legal rights and therefore are not entitled to a fair trial. Is there something wrong with this picture? HELL YES!

    the reason why DoD cannot account for $2 trillion is because it's classified for public information. I'm sure it's been spent on black ops and the budget set aside for discretionary fund such as bribing the tribal leader or person into cooperating with USA.

    Please do not think first that it went to corrupted politicians' pockets. I'm sure it's happened many times but it's not my first thought and this is relatively small compared to what's needed to accomplish the mission.

    So we are not question where the two trillion went? That is a hell lot of money and must be repaid. Figure out how much each citizen in the US owes on it. We see the fruits and cannot complain about it?

    the better question is - how much are you willing to pay for your freedom and security?

    and in case you didn't know - of course there are investigations and hearings dedicated to seeing where the hell those $2 trillion go but the public does not need to know. I don't think all of you need to know. I'm sure they have created better protocol and procedures - a better oversight. That's why Gitmo Camp got better.

    And it wouldn't have gotten better if the atrocities had not been exposed.

    because it was hastily put together and there was no clear guideline initially. This is not a movie where in the event of far-fetched scenario like alien or plague breakout and the soldiers would rush in and establish perimeter like they knew what to do in the first place.

    This was first time for us and we learned from it and we got better. You've already seen the result of Bush's national security policy. **hint hint - US Airways 1549

    you don't know that but I do because I doubt the government would continue this such thing for several years. That's why I continue to live here, pay my tax, and support my American government. If I know my government would commit such atrocities after atrocities... simple - pack up & leave for Canada and denounce my American citizenship.

    Denial is a wonderful thing.

    :lol: Like I said - I doubt the government would continue this kind of atrocity for several years. Blame the media for exaggerated disinformation/misinformation and they're very effective at it.
