Best Place to Send the dangerous Guantanamo Prisoners

    

From http://www.flickr.com/photos/69402304@N00/2581287059/

Only about 60 Prisoners in Guantanamo Prison deserve to be held in detention. (Almost 90 long-term prisoners have been cleared for release.)  Almost none of these 60-some prisoners have been charged.  The administration only plans to charge about 30 of these.  

One suggestion has been made to close Guantanamo Prison immediately and move it to Ft. Benning, Georgia--whereby the School of Americas could also be closed and the housing of the SOA could be used for the prisoners and courts to live out their coming days under proper Federal oversight. Others suggest sending the "dirty thirty" to various federal courts. 

NOTE:   The School of the Americas (SOA) is a combat training school for Latin American soldiers, located at Fort Benning, Georgia. In 2001 renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC). It was initially established in Panama in 1946 however it was expelled from Panama in 1984 under the terms of the  Panama Canal Treaty  (article iv) and reinforced under the   Treaty Concerning the Permanent Neutrality and Operation of the Panama Canal (article v).

Should the administration________________?


Allow Congressmen to continue to prohibit the relocation of these men
Immediately close Guantanamo Prison &send 30 to 60 prisoners to federal courts.
Immediately close Guantanamo Prison and send 30 to 60 prisoners to Ft. Benning
Keep those 30 to 60 in Guantanamo but let the other 80 to 90 out immediately
