    with the implication that when these big boogeymen get out and blow shit up, we will be sorry, but don't come crying to them.

    I am sorry, I hate to say it, but if I were held for 6 years with no recourse, perhaps even being tortured, if I got out I would be no friend to the United States.  They hold up that released Gitmo prisoner that became a suicide bomber a few weeks back as reasons for detaining these people indefinitely.  To me, all it proves is that we are doing ourselves no favors - more people that hate us, and very justifiably so.  And no, I am not saying this because I think that they should be held (as in, well, even if they weren't an enemy before, they are an enemy now).  I am just saying this because ... god help us.  How could anyone possibly think that any of this was a good idea?
