    or go there for the first time, even had they not been combatants previously?  Are they supposed to feel gratitude for six years of imprisonment and abuse? The 61 number may be debunked, but I'm surprised that they don't all take up arms against us after being released. Just another example of Bush/Cheney creating more terrorists where there were few or none before.

    In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican. - H.L. Mencken

          We need to think creatively about this.

          I outlined a reasonable (but politically difficult) way to solve this problem by doing what's right.

          It would increase our moral standing in the community of nations while decreasing the risk of these men becoming terrorists.

      See: Pardon, Apologize, Compensate, Release (and Rehabilitate), Monitor

      And I think it would be the cheapest approach.

      Bush hijacked the US with lies about 9/11 and crashed it into Iraq, killing over 500,000 human beings. So far, he's avoided arrest and prosecution.
