Hello, fancy to debate with you,

Guantanamo Bay should be kept open for the extraction of precious information from the terrorists kept inside and the further interrogation of these war criminals. Without this prison we wouldn't have the resources and information available for more then 200 different operations in the Afghani war! To close it is like deleting important files that took you ages to make!

The prisoners are treated terribly at Guantanamo Bay and few are ever charged with a crime. there is no reason these people cant be held in a federal prison. They would be protected from torture and have the right to a trial. Susan Crawford, a judge at Guantanamo admitted that they tortured a suspected member of 9/11 attacks and could not try him anymore. close Guantanamo and protect human rights.

You cannot say these people have any rights! They gave up their rights when they assaulted and attacked the country with the strongest military and federal control in the world! When 9/11 came around they weren't citizens anymore, and most weren't even ever American citizens! They lost their rights when they gave them up to attack us. I admit the treatment should be better, but if you pay attention to the news they are all trying to kill themselves anyway! Their religion dictates they must do something morally un-justified in almost every corner of the globe! They aren't regular infra structurally society scumbag, they are war criminals and can't be treated like others in federal prisons. They didn't just loiter, or drink and drive, or assault someone, they attacked a country under their own intentions. They started war, therefore they should be treated like war criminals. I don't see why they should get a free way out if they did the wrong, now they HAVE to pay the price, these are like the Nuremberg trials and confinements, no one complained about them, why now?

Good job generalizing all terrorists as muslim. That is very stereotypical and not correct. Also, everyone has god given rights and the prisoners should have the same rights as an american citizen under the constitution. They are US prisoners and should be given the right to a fair and speedy trial. They should be treated like ever other prisoner. A terrorist is like a murderer. But if a murderer was robbed of rights it would be all over the media and would be a big deal, but since these are terrorist nobody cares about their rights. Also the prisoners are only suspected terrorists and hardly any are ever charged with an actually crime. and no i do not believe they should get a free way out, i believe they should be held in a federal prison, and the Nuremberg trials dont even relate. Those were war trials and the prisoners were put on trial and had rights, at Guantanamo there are no trials and nobody has rights. It is time to close Guantanamo

Wow away-from-keyboard really ruined this argument. I have not generalized all terrorists as Muslims and vise verse, just like in the majority religion in America, Christianity, the Islam religion has different branches or echelons. Like how Methodism and Proletarianism is a more calm and modern edition of Christianity while Baptism and Catholicism are hardcore and old fashioned, Islam has similar branches. Although they all have the same basic beliefs they each deviate into their own ( kind of like every other modern religion! Whoah! Cultural education!) When you attack a country you should be treated as an enemy soldier, no doubt about trials and other shenanigans and such utter pissery but have them hanged for assault, after all valuable information has been exhausted from them of course. Capitalist punishment after thorough interrogation is what we should be doing in Guantanamo Bay, and it is hopefully the future. Now don't you come at me with your equal liberalistic nonsense, they all had the EQUAL chance to say "no" and back away. But they all chose yes, now they MUST pay! They gave up their human rights when they became war criminals! And since I have the last word I must say, farewell.
