Guantanamo Bay detention center: Should Guantanamo detainees be tried in US courts?

  • Yes, they have broken American laws.

    And I think if you are breaking American laws, then you should have the right to be tried in an American court. There is no reason for secret military-themed tribunals without the due process of law. If we're trying to show the rest of the world that our war on terrorism is a just war, then we need to demonstrate that the American way of life, including our justice system, is the best way of life.

  • No, they should be sent back to their country of origin.

    Most Guantanamo bay detainees are not from Cuba, and should be sent back to their country of origin to face charges there. Yes, it is true that some of these countries want nothing to do with these men, and will not allow them back into their homelands. In this case, I believe a separate hearing should be held, but not on US soil. The minute Guantanamo detainees reach US soil they are now our responsibility. If they ever face the day when the bars are not holding them in, we will then be the land that they roam free in. This poses a great concern to our security.
