Don't Set Me Free, GI Joe!


Iraqi prisoners are refusing to leave prison because they want to finish their studies there. About twenty-three thousand adults and juveniles are held in two jails, Camp Cropper at Baghdad International Airport and Camp Bucca at Basr. Not only are prisoners demanding to be kept behind bars until they graduate, their parents are begging the jails to let the siblings of the prisoners be locked up with them so they can go to school, too.

Of the six thousand prisoners released from the camps since last September, only 12 have been recaptured, a recidivism rate of 0.02%, 1 in 500.

I wonder if this indicates that we should have been filling schools instead of prisons. General Petraeus is doing an excellent job.

So do you think that if an enemy combatant is caught on the battlefield he or she should be placed in a school instead of a prison?

Lets try that with criminals in the U.S. and see how that works.

Or better yet continue putting schools inside prisons as we have always done.

Anyway, the U.S. built and refurbished many schools in Iraq. Those statistics have been routinely ignored by the media.

No...I think they should be given a beer and a bacon double cheeseburger.

All enemy combatants are not created equal. I suspect that the majority of these were just trying to put food on the table. If you were a genuine combatant would you want to stay in prison?

The hard part I imagine is finding the real Quran waving jihadomists. Those are the ones that need an education. The rest of them just need a job.
