    This detention thing has really no precedent regarding international law. How can the US justify treating these people like that? I am glad the Red Cross brought the issue up.

    Are they being physically mistreated?

    I'd rather have them rotting in Gitmo than blowing themselves up and killing us.

    No doubt they are getting treated better than even those in civilian prisons.

    Maybe those people who complain about how the interned are being treated should shut their traps. They should be happy that they didn't follow the Geneva Convention by the book.

    Otherwise, most of those at X-Ray would be dead before they even reached it.
