    Actually, most if not all have been ‘cleared’ by the military. They have not had a proper trial or opportunity to defend themselves.They were the victims of the ‘bounty’ policy of the US Army in Afghanistan. The USA will not return a British citizen to the UK as he is not white. This is not left-wing propaganda. It is being reported in our right-wing press.

    You assume that these people have been determined to be criminals. They have not. They are enemy combatants. They are prisoners of war. Just like the revolutionary war, civil war, Mexican-Americn war, world war 1, Korean conflict, world war 2, Vietnamese conflict. They are not criminals.

    It’s just sad when these two images are juxtiposed. In one evil imprisons, and in the other it is imprisoned.

    So ludicrous and not relevant. You can leave at any time. Or become super rich then you pay very little in taxes. Recommended by the faceless Plutocrats.

    Because we live in the USA and our laws forbid it and yet it happens. What I your excuse?

    “Catered meals” isn’t what they get. Incarceration away from their families friends and wives. Not a good place to be unless you are abducted by the USA off of city streets.

    So you agree with the Fascist way they are being treated? Not surprised.

    First none of them are murderers. Either cleared or not even charged. But I see you like the Fascist way of conviction by illegal incarceration over our legal system.

    When did any of those in Gitmo wage war on the USA? None of them.

    They aren’t “enemy combatants.” And that is just a creation out of whole cloth by the criminal Bush Administration and carried over into the criminal Obama Administration.

    Of course you would be ignorant of their being cleared. It would upset your Nazi ideals. Guilty because they were put in prison. Even the Nazi’s and Bolsheviks faked some of the trials. Not necessary in our criminal system.

    In response to the force-feeding, the American Medical Association sent a letter to Obama’s State Department, clarifying its contention that such procedures are inhumane:


    Where a prisoner refuses nourishment and is considered by the physician as capable of forming an unimpaired and rational judgment concerning the consequences of such a voluntary refusal of nourishment, he or she shall not be fed artificially.


    would like to ask that the Administration review the status of the 86 detainees who were cleared for transfer in the past and let me know if there are suitable places to continue to hold or resettle these detainees either in their home countries or third countries.

    ….
    “There is a group of 46 individuals who have been deemed ‘too dangerous’ to be released,” Laura Pitter, counterterrorism advisor for Human Rights Watch tells TakePart. “The administration says they don’t have enough admissible evidence to convict these individuals of a crime. They won’t prosecute because they would lose the case.”

    ….
    So the administration continues to hold these individuals under questionable legal justifications.


    Pitter says there is, of course, no guarantee against any of the 86 cleared detainees reverting to—or taking up for the first time—terrorism if they are released.


    There are, however, some case studies the government can use to influence its decision. Pitter says of the 600 individuals who have been freed from Guantanamo since its inception, only 3 percent have been confirmed to have engaged in militancy after release.


    “The U.S. criminal recidivism rate is 60 percent,” she says. “You cannot guarantee someone is completely safe. But these people are being detained illegally. Ultimately that makes the United States less safe. The president himself has said it’s in the U.S. national security intersest to close Guantanamo down.” ^

    ^ So he says but his actions say otherwise. But then he is killing them now so no trial, no incarceration and no witnesses.

    Many of those so called victims have been caught or killed after release.
