I dont really think so. Sure what happened was bad, but it's war time and a lot of bad things happen to them and a lot of bad things happen to us. What goes around comes around and I dont think we need to be throwing money at them because it would seem to me that would only piss them off more.

why does everyone think everything can be solved with money

I think anyone involved in torture should be fully prosecuted and face prison time. When the criminal trials are over it can be up to the detainees to decide if they want to ask for damages. But I don't think money should just be given to them, *especially* when the criminal trial phase hasn't been completed yet.

No. We need to get away from this 'money solves everything' notion.

Ohlefy consistantly has good ideas that are expressed level-headedly and, as per usual, I agree with her.

Whoa, dude went off.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/14/04 - 9:50:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
CHOCOLOCO-They were not tortured. Humiliated, yes. I agree that their balls should be cut off. Work on your grammar.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/14/04 - 9:51:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, no they shouldn't. That would be going a bit too far. Jesus
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/14/04 - 9:52:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
Compensation? No. They should be glad that they were released to begin with rather than be transferred to another facility. Assuming that even half of the released prisoners were involved in firefights with coalition forces prior to capture, why not have THEM compensate the injured coalition forces soldiers or families?
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/14/04 - 2:51:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
they should actually be happy they are still alive! compensation...wtf...

Yeah, a bag on your head is really bad.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 8/15/04 - 3:43:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
Save them from the insult of being captured instead of being portrayed as the uber-zealot fanatic that we choose to know them as.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 9/20/04 - 12:40:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
They're lucky to be alive. If they were prisoners in Iraq, then they would have something to complain about.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 9/20/04 - 1:27:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think anyone should be monetarily compensated for anything that happens to them during a war, on either side. That being said, I would like to see those responsible for the TORTURE punished.

This whole thing makes me sick to my stomach. There shouldn't even be an issue here! They are all lucky to be alive. If you ask me, the answer to ending terrorism is not giving this scum Constitutional Right's, but giving them all summarry executions. No prisons. No Camp X-ray. Just the bullet in the head they desereve.

I feel many people say 'no' simply because they are 'the enemy.'
