    Should he be released at this time? Will he go to Ireland? Will he become involved in terrorism?

    He did the crime and served the time.

    Who cares what he does when he gets out?

    If he re-offends, then re-arrest him. Problem solved.

    So ... he blows up a bus in NY or London, kills 30, and we'll re-arrest him and probably give him 20 years.

    Perfect.

    Obama negotiated with the Taliban as well, which is a good thing. I Forgot, the left loves them some forever War now.

    The next logical step would be to register as a Democrat and get involved with various campaigns. This way he could help destroy America without going to prison.

    Seems the gop hires the criminals. Maybe they need a new RNC finance chair since Cohen isn’t available?

    Absolute expulsion from :flagus: and territories.
    Enemy combatant status. Registered like a sex offender.
    Not even appointment to the U.N. should allow him back.

    Just heard he has decided to announce his candidacy as a Democratic nominee for the 2020 Presidential election.

    Sounds like he's off to the Auld Sod.... and good riddance.. But I'm all for this suggestion in the article

    SNIP
    In the U.S., meanwhile, multiple lawmakers have called for the creation of a registry of convicted terrorists, modeled after sex-offender registries, as multiple high-profile releases are set to take place in the next two years.
    ENDSNIP

    I'm very surprised this doesn't exist today.... However, for you wingnuts, the criteria for listing on this registry is CONVICTED, not SUSPECTED.... Trump cannot list every Muslim on there...

    Cha Ching...good one=) Been that way since day one. Was going to kick all the black people out of the work force if I recall and force women back into the kitchen. Its why all the Liberals were going to leave the country, so they could save their daughters. That was the mantra that morning when the terrible news was revealed to them.

    You’re right. We have to wait for him to kill Americans, which he has sworn to do. Then we can arrest him and put him away for 5 to 10 years.

    I'm sure they do, but I believe the sex offender registries require some sort of public identification, which I think is the point. If you know there is a pervert living in the next block, shouldn't you be allowed to know there is a convicted terrorist?

    I think this is where we need to think about heading...

    The US authorities had 20 years yet they made no apparent effort to deradicalise him? Maybe this is just another reason the word "rehabilitation" needs introducing in to American English.
