Most Gitmo detainees freed after transfer
Amazing.

<snip>

The Pentagon called them "among the most dangerous, best-trained, vicious killers on the face of the Earth," sweeping them up after Sept. 11 and hauling them in chains to a U.S. military prison in southeastern Cuba.

Since then, hundreds of the men have been transferred from Guantanamo Bay to other countries, many of them for "continued detention."

And then set free.

Decisions by more than a dozen countries in the Middle East, Europe and South Asia to release the former detainees raise questions about whether they were really as dangerous as the United States claimed, or whether some of America's staunchest allies have set terrorists and militants free.

1. I wonder...
Of course I know that a lot of the detainees have been released..I've heard that money was paid out to those who turned others in...but could it be that so many were arrested and detained to make it "look" like we are in danger? I've heard so many things about how a lot of the "terror" we are at war with doesn't exist.
