But, Milt, you illustrate his point: you say that "suspected" terrorists should be killed. Many an innocent person has been executed (some legally, some by vigilantes, many by hooded criminals) because the executioners THOUGHT they were guilty of something. This is a thorny issue, but at least those who are detained at Gitmo are being kept alive. I don't think it would have been wise to release them after 48 hours (if they had not been charged with something) because of the nature of the jihad being waged: it is very difficult to establish evidence when the war is not with one country or group but many in many countries and there is so little cooperation from even so-called friendly governments to help us ascertain the facts.
