How about organizing the modern day equivalent of Nuremburg, for terrorists such as the worst of the worst in Guantanamo?

"Crimes Against Humanity? You would expect a Nobel Peace Prize winner ought to be able to argue for that. Right?

It would demonstrate real leadership, and lend credibility to the US position, instead of ordering them killed by drones, etc.

You know, "moral legitimacy" etc.

McCain was leading the charge to close GITMO in 2013.

Most of them have been there for a long time. Some of them were on hunger strike.

Lots of strange tropical diseases in the Caribbean. It'd be such a pity if the inmates wound up with a highly contagious disease which resulted in the sad deaths of nearly all of them. None of them has any worth while information now, it is so far out of date that it would be useless.

Why keep them alive? For pity? They have none. For charity? They deserve none. For humanity? They are not.

Sometimes Americans are too good for their own good. The UK held the fort in Afghanistan for 4 years, while the USA got on with dealing with Iraq. How many Taliban / AQ prisoners do we have? I think you'll find the answer is zero.

Most of these "prisoners" should have never become prisoners in the first place.

These are people who would re-enter the terrorist sphere as soon as they were given the freedom to do so.

They should have been captured, and then.... just "disappeared".

No apologies or regrets for making that statement...
