Fox News Host Wonders Why We Aren’t Conveniently Executing Gitmo Detainees

Fox News host Jenna Lee can't quite figure out why the Obama administration has chosen to release or transfer Guantanamo detainees to other countries rather than simply execute them.

Lee apparently believes we're taking too great a risk by releasing them rather than extrajudicially executing them while they're in our custody.

LEE: I'm not asking to arbitrarily execute people, but I'm saying if we're using a certain standard to execute them amongst innocent people overseas, then why wasn't that applied here? Because then we wouldn't have this problem. If they were deemed such a risk to America at one time, then we wouldn't even be worried about where we're releasing them, because they wouldn't be around anymore.

Yes, Satan, I suppose we wouldn't be bothered with the details if we just killed them.

As I'm sure you're aware, none of the suspects detained at Guantanamo Bay have been convicted of anything. That's one major reason why they've been there for so long.

As much as it would undoubtedly entertain Jenna Lee, her colleagues, and the Fox News audience and give them all a jingoistic hard-on, we can't just start executing prisoners of war.

I can't prove that Jenna Lee is a lizard, but that doesn't mean she isn't.
