    [QUOTE=doggin94it;4017988]True. Then again, his age might be exactly why he was sent to Gitmo, rather than be turned over to be held "in terrible conditions in Afghanistan"[/QUOTE]

    Are you suggesting prisoners in GITMO are being detained for reasons other then they are a threat to this country?

    Its hard to argue about the methods used at GITMO when we are now finding out that the intel that led to bin laden's killing came from detainees being held there.

    He was not a US citizen due process doesn't cover it. What is happening in Gitmo now? Not a word is said about what is happening. Where are the jounalist?

    Do you have a link that says waterboarding led to this intel? Reporting right now says the detainees refused to talk about the courier that eventually led to Bin Laden.

    First strands on bin Laden gathered in CIA prison
    (AP) 4 hours ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) Officials say CIA interrogators in secret overseas prisons developed the first strands of information that ultimately led to the killing of Osama bin Laden.

    Current and former U.S. officials say that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, provided the nom de guerre of one of bin Laden's most trusted aides. The CIA got similar information from Mohammed's successor, Abu Faraj al-Libi. [B]Both were subjected to harsh interrogation tactics inside CIA prisons in Poland and Romania.[/B]
    The news is sure to reignite debate over whether the now-closed interrogation and detention program was successful. Former president George W. Bush authorized the CIA to use the harshest interrogation tactics in U.S. history. President Barack Obama closed the prison system.
