......prosecute terrorists in Gitmo when the "terrorists" they captured didn't commit any crimes (or attempted to) on US soil? Had these suspects been found in the US plotting to attack us, then the White House would have a case for prosecuting them, since they were on US soil attempting to commit a crime. But the thing is...these people were captured in foreign countries, where the US has absolutely no jurisdiction. So essentially the US has committed numerous acts of kidnapping by arresting these people and taking them to Gitmo. They weren't on US soil, so how could they be arrested legally?
