Wrong Approach

This is Bush-style anti-terrorism mindset.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A Saudi national released from U.S. detention at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in September 2007 is believed to be a key leader in al Qaeda's operations in Yemen, according to a U.S. counterterrorism official.

You know who else is in "key" positions in Al-Qaeda? People who have never been held in Guantanamo.

Furthermore, you cannot predict what someone is going to do. If you could, why don't we institute pre-emptive criminal arrests in the US?

This is like the whole nonsense of counting how many "insurgents" or "terrorists" are killed in an offensive, and as someone once said, "if you have 100 terrorists and you kill 50, how many do you have? 200."
