senate Bill S. 165

Should There be Restrictions on the Release or Transfer of Guantanamo Bay Prisoners?

Argument in favor

Too many Guantanamo Bay detainees have been released and returned to terrorism. The restrictions on their transfer or release that this bill imposes will safeguard the U.S. against terrorist activity.

Those at Guantonimo committed acts of war against Americans. They are not common criminals, so they should not be treated as such. They want ALL Americans dead. We are the infidels to them. All the terrorists that have been released have pledged to fight Americans again on the battlefield. We need to deal with these people the same way George Washington did enemy combatants.

Argument opposed

Keeping detainees at Guantanamo Bay indefinitely without trial is contrary to American ideals, and few detainees return to terrorism. Not only that, but it has become a recruiting tool for terrorist groups.

The prisoners in Guantanimo should be charged as POW's or not charged and sent home.

Retaining without trial or proof places the US in a position of hypocrisy and isolation from international support. It also guves true terrorists grounds on which to recruit.

They should have a trial or military tribunal. Or even tried at The Hague. If there is prof of wrong doing then bring it to light. The government seems to think we should hold them forever. Show the American people why that is, let us see for ourselves. Human rights are human rights no?

    The Gitmo prisoners who have been released have all rejoined fighting in the name of Islamic extremism. Guantanamo is the safest place for these criminals to be, and they should remain there.

    Because they are not US citizens, they don't officially fall under the Bill of Rights or the Constitution, they're also not subject to be confined in a stateside prison. They're a threat to the mainland, and when released, they will most likely regain their previous position as a terrorist.

    These "people" are worse than the damn nazis, to this day, nazis are hunted down, and executed. Anybody that has any ties with terrorism against this country, should be executed. Why are we keeping them prisoner in the first place? Why spend tax money on them? Why give Isis a recruiting tool. Solve two problems with one bullet.

    Please place all Gitmo prisoners on a boat to Bermuda Triangle. Story ends, peace begins. We win, they lost.

    They should be staying right where they are. As far as bringing them to the States... that is a violation of Federal Law. They should NEVER step foot on US soil.
