Report: Ex-Gitmo detainee joins al-Qaida in Yemen

CAIRO, Egypt – A Saudi man released from Guantanamo after spending nearly six years inside the U.S. prison camp is now the No. 2 of Yemen's al-Qaida branch, according to a purported Internet statement from the terror network.

The announcement, made this week on a Web site commonly used by militants, came as President Barack Obama ordered the detention facility closed within a year. Many of the remaining detainees are from Yemen, which has long posed a vexing terrorism problem for the U.S.

Nearly everyone of these fascists we let loose winds up shooting at us again.
They are ENEMIES of our country.
They have no rights under our country's laws.
STOP this crazy "we need to show compassion for them crap."
They want us dead. If given the chance they would kill you where you stand.
Do them a favor and martyr them.
You will never win their hearts and minds...NEVER.

I agree that they should not be let go, but they should either be defined as POWs or tried and punished for their terrorist activities. What is the point of holding them in limbo?

True, they are the enemy, they did horrible things to our country and our countrymen, however by keeping them in this state of holding goes against the very principals we fight for around the world.
They need to be classified as POW's and held, or charged with a crime and sent to the war crimes tribunal for judging.
