If only there were a way to convince the Clintons that he was a witness to some of their crimes...

AQ suspect brought to US instead of Guantanamo

But note

"Mr. Damache, 52, was arrested in Ireland in 2010, but he was released after an Irish judge rejected a request from the United States to extradite him. He was arrested again in 2015 in Spain. Under Mr. Obama, the Justice Department began seeking his extradition, and that effort continued under Mr. Trump"

In other words not only is this not a battlefield capture, we may well have had to agree to US federal courts instead of Gitmo in order to get the extradition.  Do I have this right?

They are illegal combatants. They are outlaws. The fact that we even have to discuss this is why we are losing the war.

I advocate winning. Whatever it takes. Remember when we used to win wars? China laughs at our spinelessness.

Right now, those scumbags in Gitmo are getting better medical care than the average vet who lost limbs in Trashcanistan.

And how would killing these prisoners help our cause?

It’s an old concept, but in war, you kill the enemy. Not adopt them as permanent dependent class.

Not jihadists, fighting outside the laws of war. Treating them like legitimate soldiers of a nation-state is beyond stupid.
