    WASHINGTON (AFP) — Two men released from the US "war on terror" prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba have appeared in a video posted on a jihadist website, the SITE monitoring service reported.
    One of the two former inmates, a Saudi man identified as Abu Sufyan al-Azdi al-Shahri, or prisoner number 372, has been elevated to the senior ranks of Al-Qaeda in Yemen, a US counter-terrorism official told AFP.

    Do you blame President Bush for this?

    So? Not everyone will be reformed and you can't kill them all, and you can't keep them locked up forever without a fair trial.

    How many people cycle back through prison after they have been caught, judged and serviced their time? I am talking about our US prisons, "normal" crimes.

    A given number of people won't reform, so you need to keep them locked up forever (after a judge/jury says they are guilty)

    A given number of people will cycle through a few times and will finally "get it".

    A given number of people will only do it once and won't ever do anything again.


    How can we treat these people any differently than we do the other criminals? Either give them a fair trial and judge them, or let them go.
