THOSE POOR INNOCENT GUANTANAMO INMATES!

By ATWadmin On July 29th, 2007

Everyone knows that those poor people interned by the Great Satan at Guantanamo Bay are innocents whose only crime was to have been caught up in the middle of battle zones into which they accidentally strayed whilst dispensing humanitarian need. So, comes the news that at least 30 former Guantanamo Bay detainees have been killed or recaptured after taking up arms against allied forces following their release.

Commander Jeffrey Gordon said the detainees had, while in custody, falsely claimed to be farmers, truck drivers, cooks, small-arms merchants, low-level combatants or had offered other false explanations for being in Afghanistan. "We are aware of dozens of cases where they have returned to militant activities, participated in anti-US propaganda or engaged in other activities," said Commander Gordon.

How many people have lost their lives care of the terrorism practised by the scum released from Guantanamo? Will Amnesty International be calling for an enquiry as to WHY these killers got out? Of course not. It is an article of faith amongst the political left, and the MSM, that Guantanamo Bay is evil. The truth is that is is the INMATES at Guantanamo who are evil and the left are hell-bent to get them released. Says it all.

  1. al be calling for an enquiry as to WHY these killers got out? Of course not. It is an article of faith amongst the political left, and the MSM, that Guantanamo Bay is evil

    Too right!!!!

    David, try the due processes of law (actually charge the detainees with something, give them acess to legal represenatation, acces to their families, and try them in a court of law) refrain from torturing and maining people who have yet to be convicted of anything. -thats what the left think is evil.

    Those entitlements outlined above are the culmination of centuries of human development. This is the very lease we offer those accused a crime.

    How can justice be jucstice if it is done in secret?

  2. Pity the only evidence for ‘torture and maiming’ comes from the same detainees who get out to then commit more acts of terror. Forgive me for not finding this overly credible.

    Oh and Ciarnan when you start reserving your ‘Left’ outrage for the actual documented daily horrors of life in dozens of African and Islamic countries which *millions* of people have to endure instead of the possible mistreatment of a handful of terrorists I might find said outrage a bit less false.

    However you are right about due process, much as it pains me to admit it. Personally I have no doubt whatsoever that 98% of those detained are every bit as guilty as David thinks they are and would all pose the same threat as those the military officer in this post is talking about. It is more than faintly ridiculous to be trying to impose civil legal codes in the cases of people who were captured on a battlefield taking up arms against our nations.

    Personally I think that bringing these people ‘home’ was a huge and incredibly naive mistake. It gave the Left a huge cause celebre which they wouldnt otherwise have had. Once upon a time ‘foreign fighters’, as the euphemism has it, would have been shot as spies – we seem to have forgotten what fighting a war actually means.

    But now we have made the enormous blunder of treating enemy soldiers as civilians, we have to acknowledge that we do have due process for a *reason*. It is wrong to simply detain people because ‘we know’ they are guilty. If it can’t be proved to a jury then it isnt grounds for holding them, otherwise we have abandoned the principles which make us democracies.

  3. DSD,

    Yip – it’s a tough one as you rightly point out. Killing them on the field of battle would have been much better, but our humanity is that we love life so we locked ’em up. Best thing to do would be a quick military trial, followed by either execution or release.

  4. Ex Gitmo prisoners –
    why am I not surprised?

  5. Abdullah Mehsud was also responsible for the kidnapping of those two chinese engineers after his release

  6. We’re in a war and these are prisoners of war. So the Geneva Convention applies, but they don’t have to be released till the war’s over. Simple really.

  7. What in the Hell are they doing at Gitmo? Isn’t the whole point of this place to identify the bad guys and keep them locked up.

    I think they are doing a piss poor job of interrogation and background checks.

    What they need in there are some serious southern mothers of boys questioning these men. We would have some answers right quick or their would be serious consequences. The military is way too soft.

  8. It’s a bit like releasing those guys in the black uniforms who were caught in Berlin May 1945. They were just ordinary truck-drivers, gardeners, just generally peaceful types etc. Oh! and they didn’t like Jews. The very fact of being armed and seized in Afghanistan is prima facie evidence in itself of supporting islamic terrorism and is sufficient to make that terrorist worthy of being detained indefinitely.

    And now the proof is piling up that they were indeed terrorists.

  9. The release of the repeat offenders does not demonstrate that the Gitmo situation is appropriate. It demonstrates how flawed it is. They’ve also released folks who had committed no crimes. This shows how incompetent it is being run and how tha absence of fair trials and basic justice can lead to the imprisonment of the innocent and the release of the guilty.

    And the propoganda value that AQ and anti-Western chorus obtains from this situation is priceless.
