3. I'm having a hard time understanding why everyone is so upset
about having a/some Gitmo detainees in a prison near them. I can think of dozens of extremely vicious murderers who have been imprisoned for years in our high security prisons. Why are these "terrorists" any worse?

6. The media is disgusting on this
Where were all these stories when they first started releasing some of these people. Bush released them, and they're going to pretend Obama is going to do the same and blame the whole thing on him.

8. And to top it off, there was not necessarily in each case
enough evidence to convict them, or not even enough to arrest them.

But for years convicted murderers have been in the prisons.

9. Nah, I got a better plan
Find an uninhabited island. Make sure there are plenty of natural resources. Give them some tools and food to last a few months. Bury some fun and frivolous objects in specific locations. Set up secret cameras, pump it through to NBC, and watch as America enjoys the newest, craziest, realist Reality Television program!

For added fun, do the same thing on a neighboring island with the Bush Administration.

10. And make sure to put them all somewhere near Houston
That'll really tick John Cornyn off.

11. I think that any suspected terrorists should go to an International Court.
The International Court could hear the case and rule. It doesn't make a lot of sense to try foreign prisoners in our own court system unless they have broken the law in this country; there by being subject to US jurisdiction. Keeping prisoners picked up during battle or suspected for terrorism would be much more impartial in International proceedings. There would be less bias and more humane treatment of prisoners.
