Free the Detainees! Another Suicide committed by a Detainee @ Guantanamo


By zeedubya - Posted on 02 June 2009

You read over and over again that "many detainees locked up in Guantanamo Bay were innocent men swept up by U.S. forces unable to distinguish enemies from noncombatants" and it's coming from Bush officials, then you read that "Former Vice President Dick Cheney says there was “never any evidence” that Saddam Hussein’s Iraq played any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington and then you read today on Yahoo "Gitmo detainee dies of an apparent suicide"

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090602/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/cb_guantanamo_detainee_death. Most of these detainees need to be freed. It is not fair for us to continue to hold them. It breaks my heart that these men have been lingering in jail. The majority of these detainees are innocent but because they have been held for so long some of them are probably a threat to the US. How do you clean up this mess? Honestly Barack has no idea how he is going to close GT. I bet he wishes he can simply release the majority of the detainees, who did not do anything wrong.

not all the detainee's are innocent. They must review all the information and files. Yes, it would be nice if we could snap our fingers and send them all home. We must set the innocent free, but not terrorist that would likely murder you in your sleep. Obama is a smart man, and I think he will figure it out, given time. We can only pray that he will be guided in the right way.
This is so awful.  Are we not supposed to care about these human beings because they are Muslim?  I pray that the way out for our nation and our President comes to correct this shameful and difficult situation. 

Are we not supposed to care about these human beings because they are Muslim?

In response to your question above, this seems to be the case. It's like if you are Muslim then you are probably a terrorist. That is how Cheney/Bush initially approached the issue and since then most politicians in the House and Senate comments are slanted to assume they are guilty until proven innocent. With this view, there are innocent human beings rotting away in GT.

Even on the Cross, Jesus had compassion for the two men hanging to his right and left.  This is why the Muslim world does not give much substantive credence to Obama's diplomatic efforts.  It says so much about our Christian principles, huh?  They would at least respect us if we were at least strong on our values, but apparently they view us as only lip-service people.  I am so sorry for our nation's soul.
