Question :Although we are at war, do you think the detainees at Guantanamo Prison - some of whom were picked up shortly after the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center - should be held any longer without trail? Or should they be returned to their home country?


"Everybody should have a fair trail. You can't just hold people. I'm not saying you should let some go who are going to be dangerous. The persons  they have in prison should find out one way or another if they are a threat. If they are not a threat, let them go."

We don't know who are our enemies or who are our friends. It's a shame that it came to this. But we have to defend our soldiers - and democracy. Exactly."

But we have to defend our soldiers - and democracy. Exactly." Mickey Spandofora, Canarsie"They should hold them for a trial. It's terrible to hold people without a trial. But they definitely can't let some of them go to their home country because they are too dangerous."

But if they are not, they should be entitled to a fair trial here in America. All people are entitled to a fair trial."
